Student Board

Hillel is an integral part of student life at Trinity. The Student Board is a group of talented and dedicated student leaders who come together weekly to plan all the social, cultural, religious and educational programming that Hillel offers.  Hillel student leaders have great opportunities to build bridges and create connections with other groups on campus as well as co-sponsor a myriad of events with many cultural and theme houses as well as academic departments.
