Elon ranked #36 on the list of “Top 60 Private Schools Jews Choose,” rising in the rankings and maintaining its 10 percent Jewish student population even as Elon University continues to grow. The Hillel College Guide is seen as an  essential resource for Jewish students choosing higher education options and offers information of Jewish life at colleges and universities around the world for current and prospective undergraduate and graduate students

Elon Hillel is a place that supports the journeys of all students, no matter the destination, and offers student-led and staff-supported programming that embraces the dynamic diversity of Jewish traditions.  

A new and robust staffing arrangement, designed to encourage and strengthen the continued growth of Jewish Life at the university, has led to a boom in new student-initiated programming on Elon’s campus, and increased engagement for Jewish students as they explore their connections to their religious heritage.
