Although it may have been awhile since you have walked through campus with backpacks and books in tow, I am sure you can still picture the Sample Gates, can remember rushing through the Arboretum to class, can imagine the shops and restaurants on Kirkwood, can envision the excitement of IU basketball games and Little 5, can remember the smell of challah before Shabbat dinner at Hillel, and are still in touch with many of your college friends. Everywhere I go, when I’m wearing my red IU t-shirt, people stop me to say “GO IU” or “GO HOOSIERS”! These memories and many more are why you and so many other IU Hoosiers remain passionately loyal to Indiana University and IU Hillel.
IU Hillel has grown tremendously over the past 10 years and has indeed become the center of Jewish life at Indiana University. With the Jewish population at IU growing to over 4,000 students, IU Hillel sees at least 2,500 students each academic year through our new Center for Informal Jewish Education, our Greek Jewish Council, holiday programming, Student Board, diversity programming, Campus Superstar, the new Social Media and Marketing Team, our weekly Shabbat services and family-style Shabbat dinners, and countless other initiatives. IU Hillel has grown to be one of the strongest Hillel programs in North America.
