UNC Hillel is always proud to have our students featured on the national stage! Hillel International recently featured senior Sam Pompeo in its Fall 2016 College Guide, which shows how Hillel enriches Jewish students’ campus experiences and highlights some of the many exciting programs available to students across North America. Sam participated in Onward Israel for two months last summer, interning with Jerusalem Village in Israel. She planned events that helped newcomers feel like they truly belong in the city. Sam has been involved with UNC Hillel since she was a first-year student, and last fall, she helped plan our Week of Welcome events, welcoming new Jewish Tar Heels to campus and to Hillel.
Regarding her experience as the Week of Welcome coordinator, Sam recalled, “I really felt like we were making a difference when we met so many new students! I hope all Jewish Tar Heels can find their home at Hillel like I have.” We are honored to have Sam here for another semester, truly adding to our welcoming community.
