UNC Hillel Ranked Most Impactful in North America
Congratulations to UNC Hillel, which was recently named as the most impactful chapter in North America by Hillel International, a worldwide organization that promotes Jewish campus life at colleges and universities across the globe. The awards were a culmination of Hillel International’s nationwide survey of more than 10,000 Jewish college students to evaluate the impact of its programs.
About 5% of Carolina’s undergraduate and graduate student community is Jewish, and UNC Hillel promotes the celebration of Jewish life and learning at Carolina. With a building on campus, UNC Hillel hosts weekly events in addition to providing an inviting space for students to study and relax. One celebrated event is the weekly Shabbat celebration with student-led services followed by a delicious, complimentary Kosher dinner.
Students new to UNC can learn more about UNC Hillel through its website and during the Week of Welcome, which features a series of events introducing new first-year and transfer students to the many opportunities at Carolina.
If you’d like to join an active community that celebrates students of all backgrounds, beliefs, and interests, we hope that you’ll consider applying to Carolina (if you haven’t already). The final deadline for first-year applicants is January 15. The deadline for transfer applicants is February 15.
