Our group was captivated by Emory’s natural beauty, and first followed a Sophomore Advisor who showed us the unique and special campus on a tour. Emory has it all–from opportunities to get involved with clubs and organizations to a diverse slate of majors.
When we arrived at the Marcus Hillel Center on campus, I learned what a Hillel is, and how important it can be to Jewish students. Rabbi Russ Shulkes energetically showed us around, fed us some french fries, and engaged us in an exciting conversation about Jewish life at colleges throughout Georgia. I now understand that connecting with Jews is more important than focusing on their level of practice. I also know that wherever you go, you can and will find someone to connect with!
