Why should Jewish students attend UNC-Greensboro? Although UNC-Greensboro may not have the largest Jewish population, UNCG Hillel provides students with a very close-knit Jewish community. Students can easily get involved in the Jewish community however they’d like —- and make an impact. There are ample resources to help students create programs to address student needs and interests. The greater Greensboro Jewish community is very supportive of Jewish campus life and provides numerous opportunities in which students can participate. — Ari Gauss, executive director, North Carolina Hillel
