Hillel at Kent State is the foundation for Jewish life at Kent State University and University of Akron for 1200 Jewish students at KSU and 300 at UA. We seek to inspire Jewish undergraduate and graduate students to make enduring commitments to Jewish life in ways that are meaningfully relevant to their lives. Our home, The Cohn Jewish Student Center, opened in 2009 as an 11,000 sq ft state-of-the-art facility which sits in the heart of Kent’s campus. It is the first Hillel building on campus at a state school. In 2013 Hillel at Kent State won the Indispensible Partner Award from Hillel International for the deep and unprecedented relationships we have with our host campuses. This year, Kent State will recognize us for being an “Outstanding Campus Partner.”

 

There is a “buzz” in the community and on campus about our organization due in large part to the great success of our strong professional staff team which has more than 30 years experience building Jewish life and on campuses across the country.

 

Hillel at Kent State is located 25 minutes from Akron, Ohio and 40 minutes from Cleveland’s east side, home to a thriving Jewish community of 80,000+.

  

Hillel at Kent State is affiliated with Hillel International.  Hillel International enriches the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world, and envisions a world where every student is inspired to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning and Israel.

 


About Kent State University and the University of Akron:

Kent State University and University of Akron are two premier public universities in Northeast Ohio. Both attract students from around the globe; however a great majority of the student body for each institution comes from within a 100 mile radius. KSU has a made a recent strategic effort to recruit from along the east coast (and has invited Hillel to assist with those efforts). Kent State is known for its schools of fashion, communications, education and business. University of Akron has a world renowned polymer sciences school. Kent State has been a leader in service learning sending students to the gulf coast for many years and focusing on local immersive service learning projects as well. Kent State is a strong partner in our work and we enjoy being an indispensible partner to the university. Kent State and University of Akron enjoy a healthy and fun athletics rivalry.

 

About Northeast Ohio:

Our staff is evenly divided between living in Akron and Cleveland, but all would agree that Northeast Ohio is a hidden jewel. The area boasts one of the best Metropark systems, a world renowned arts and culture center in Cleveland, a vibrant music scene that brings local and nationally known artists, some of the best public and private schools in the country. Its affordability (and lack of traffic!) is incomparable to most regions that have such amenities. Hearty Northeast Ohioans enjoy all four seasons!

 

The Jewish communities in Akron and Cleveland are large enough to have your choice from a variety synagogues and Jewish organizations and cultural opportunities- but small enough that you’ll soon know people at the kosher butcher. They offer big city opportunities with mid-west appeal.
