Jewish Student Life
Jewish life at UC Santa Cruz is student-generated and student-led in partnership with our professional team. With student groups and interests ranging from Jewish music to social justice to Israel advocacy, Jewish life on campus is diverse and thriving. And, if we don't have what you're looking for, we'll help you make it happen! Explore each of these pages to learn about the many ways students connect with Jewish life.
Where do you fit in? What does it mean to live away from the only home you’ve known? What are good decisions to make today in order to positively impact your future tomorrow? College is a unique time of immense reflection and growth. For the first time, you’ll be living independently in the world, aiming to fuse the great lessons of your childhood with a new & exciting adulthood in college. We are here to help you dig into the big questions of college life, supporting you along the way. One of our staff members is ready and waiting to take you out to coffee, hear your story, and help you find the right niche on campus that works for you.
