IU has become a university chosen by top Jewish high school students and leaders because of the excellence and vibrance of its Hillel, Jewish Studies program, and all around Jewish student community on campus. Few schools can match the range of Jewish intellectual, social, and cultural opportunities that IU can. Indiana University has a well-earned reputation as a school where Jewish students not only receive a fine education, but also as a university where they can meet other Jewish students from throughout the U.S. and participate in a wide array of Jewish campus activities. IU has a very strong and active Jewish community. Hillel offers programs and opportunities to get involved everyday and oftentimes, multiple programs each day. Courses for university credit are taught at Hillel. And Hillel offers 15-20 different clubs including Business Leadership Initiative, Hooshir (premiere Jewish cappella group), Hoosiers for Israel, Third Street Sports Grille and much more. Up to 120 students/year go on Birthright Israel trips with IU Hillel.
