| E-mail this to a friendOne of the most common questions people ask Hillel during the college-application process is "Which school has the most Jewish students?"
The answer may be found on Hillel's online Guide to Jewish Life on Campus, which provides complete population statistics on hundreds of colleges and universities around the world, along with a wealth of information on campus activities. Convenient drop-down boxes enable users to search by location, availability of kosher dining and many other criteria.
But for those who don't like mysteries, here are the top 10 universities, both public and private, based on the number of Jewish undergraduates enrolled. Please note that these figures are approximate and based on reports from the Hillel professionals serving these campuses.
