Campus Climate

Elon welcomes Jewish students to a dynamic and exciting campus. Community is essential to learning at Elon and is a central part of the campus culture.

“Everybody on this campus is very engaged,” explains student board member Meara Waxman ‘19, “This creates an environment where people are willing to learn from each other, and where they want to build community together.”

Students at Bagel Brunch

Our warm and welcoming home away from home at the Sklut Hillel Center is a place where students gather for bagel brunches and Israeli cooking classes, for Shabbat dinners, Hanukkah parties and movie nights, to head out to play flag football or go on a nature hike.  

All students know they can come by the house anytime – with their friends, Jewish and not – to write papers, prepare lunch from the full fridge, bake cookies, just unwind with friends, or chat with the Hillel staff, who are always available to our students.  


Our Mission:

Jewish Life at Elon University supports students’ journeys, no matter the destination. We are a welcoming, lively, and inclusive community that provides an empowering, innovative, and joyful Jewish experience for all students; inspires discovery and ownership of personal identity; prepares students for life beyond college as leaders and community members; and embraces the dynamic diversity of Jewish traditions.
