When Jill Carnaghi first arrived at Washington University as a job applicant in 1997, she got a memorable introduction to the school. It came in the form of a campus tour by an enthusiastic young student union president.
"She's terrific," said Carnaghi, who now serves as associate vice chancellor for students and dean of campus life. "She's the first student I ever met when I came to Washington University for my interview."
The warm welcome Carnaghi experienced more than a decade ago will soon become a reality for today's incoming Jewish freshmen at Washington University with the naming of that former student leader Jacqueline "Jackie" Ulin Levey to head the campus's branch of Hillel.
"I can think of no better person to fill that role," Carnaghi said. "She's incredibly bright, a good critical thinker, understands students and what it takes to have a great student experience. I think she'll contribute much to students, the Hillel organization and to the campus."
