It's hard to believe that this is the last time we will go up to Ithaca as undergraduates. Every fall we have started out our semester at Cornell Hillel's Freshfest and the BBQ on Balch and began our year surrounded by new Jewish students. Freshest is a reminder of how Hillel is home for us. It is a place to start the year and spend the year surrounded by a loving, supportive community. Whatever you need, we are here for you, and however you want to be involved in within the Hillel umbrella, we welcome you. If there is something you would like to see Hillel offer that it does not, please come tell us. This is your community and your college experience.

Looking forward to spending an amazing semester/year with you all!
