Why Guy Supports Bethlehem University:
“After visiting the University and following up with faculty (and later through the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre on video with students and faculty), we have come to look at Bethlehem University as the best hope for peace and understanding in the Holy Land as well as providing students with a great academic education.”
