About OSU Hillel
One of the oldest Hillel Foundations in the country, Hillel at The Ohio State University was established in Columbus, Ohio in 1925. OSU Hillel engages students in social, cultural, educational, and religious activities both on and off campus. Students participate in more than 60 programs per quarter ranging from community service, social action, athletic activities, music, Israel programming to religious education. With a strong focus on leadership development, students are encouraged and trained to organize and lead their own groups while benefiting from the extensive resources of this nationally-recognized institution.
The Wexner Jewish Student Center is located at 46 E. 16th Ave. in Columbus Ohio.
Dedicated in 1996, the Wexner Jewish Student Center is a 26,000 square-foot facility serving over 4000 students, staff, and faculty at The Ohio State University. Hillel, by design, provides flexible space to our many student organizations and supports a number of Hillel initiatives. From our 350 seat auditorium, to our quiet library and activity center, Hillel's available space accommodates many programs and events. Our full service café serves fresh kosher meals five days a week. The Schiff Fitness Center, opened in 1999, sees nearly 200 quarterly members using circuit/cardio equipment and free weights. Our new student lounge, adjacent to the café, features ample space for a game of euchre, foosball, or Catch Phrase. You can sink into a couch or chair for big-screen TV viewing. The Wexner Jewish Student Center also has a ping pong table, a Nintendo Wii and wireless internet. Upstairs our Atrium gallery hosts variety of media and art displays, class rooms, lounges and window seats all offer plenty of study, conversation, or quiet reflection spaces.
