Summer B 2020
For thousands of incoming students, Summer B marks the beginning of their UF careers. Even in these very different times, Hillel remains committed to welcoming new students to the Gator Nation and helping them connect to the Jewish community at UF.
During Summer B, UF Hillel will be hosting a series of virtual events including an Insider's Guide to Greek Life, Virtual Tour of UF, Freshman Year Survival Guide, and Shabbat Game Night. All these programs have been created in response to student interest and will be led by the Directors of UF Hillel’s Leaders of Change Freshman Leadership Development Program. Should you have any questions, please contact Marya Slade, Director of Jewish Student Life.
Registration is required for all events. Zoom links will be sent to your email upon completion of the form.
