Since 1930, there has been a Hillel on the UConn campus. Every decade has brought its changes to Jewish life on campus, but each year Jewish life has grown. Now, Jewish students from across the United States and worldwide comprise more than 10% of the UConn student body on the Storrs campus.
UConn Hillel doesn't end with commencement. Our young alumni network, Hillel 2.0 (H2O) connects Jewish UConn Alumni to the greater Jewish community through support of each other and activities of interest.
A core component of H2O is career guidance and networking through professional round-tables and events. Additionally, in partnership with UConn Hillel staff, H2O highlights and communicates social, religious, intellectual and services projects with the larger UConn alumni network. H2O continues to grow beyond the CT-NY-NJ tri-state area through the use of social media and online forms of direct communication like Zoom and Google Meets to include more Jewish alumni where this ongoing connection can create a lasting impact.
Regardless of your graduation year, we'd love to hear from you! UConn Hillel would not be the strong, vibrant Jewish community we are on campus without our alumni philanthropy and off-campus involvement. Every graduating class stands on the shoulders of those that preceded it and H2O serves to link the generations to generations.
