I did know one thing. I knew that I wanted to have a Jewish community away from home to celebrate the holidays with and have a support system to help me with this big change in my life. I knew I would find that in Hillel, but what I didn’t realize is how much Hillel and the Jewish community would impact me and shape my life here at Emory! Through attending all of the amazing events planned for Hillel’s Freshman Orientation, I made such close friends and found a place that I could be comfortable in and most importantly, be myself.

Last Friday marked the 8th annual Quilt on the Quad event at Emory. We are proud to host the largest collegiate display of the AIDS Memorial Quilt each year, and equally proud of our commitment to raising AIDS awareness and supporting such an important cause.
The AIDS Memorial Quilt was created by the family members and friends of loved ones who passed away from AIDS/HIV. The NAMES Project is a non-profit organization that manages the quilt, and was founded in 1987 as a way to honor and remember those lost to the disease.

Last week, Hillel Glazer, the inventor of HeatTrak, spoke with the members of JBiz’s roundtable discussion group. This Jewish entrepreneur created outdoor heated matting products to keep walkways free from snow or ice. He freely discussed his path to becoming an entrepreneurial success.
Out of college, Glazer had a great stable job with Standard and Poor’s. While most college business students can only dream of a job like this, after a couple of years, Glazer decided to leave S and P in search of a more personally fulfilling career. This daringness should encourage students to follow their passions, in addition to just a sizeable paycheck.
