New Hillel Facility for UCF
Responding to a continuing surge in its Jewish student population, the University of Central Floroida (UCF) is preparing to open a new 20,000-square-foot Hillel facility.
With more than 6,000 Jewish undergraduates, UCF has the second largest Jewish student population of any public university in America. The new Hillel center, designed for creativity, social action, student leadership development and Jewish activities, is scheduled to open in August 2013 and will feature a modern theater, game room, cafe, lounge areas, meeting rooms and more.
"The new Hillel facility will add an exciting new dimension to Jewish campus life at UCF,"
said Hank Katzan, chairman of the Board of Directors of Central Florida Hillel.
"Beginning in August, we will finally have a destination that is designed to meet our diverse programs and needs, while appealing to the individual lifestyles and interests of our students."
