Meet awesome student organizations!
Each week we highlight two religious student organizations. Joining a group or attending their events is a great way to connect with fellow students and find a supportive community on campus. 
Learn more and get in contact with these groups here!

Claremont Hillel
Hillel at the Claremont Colleges is a vibrant 7-C Jewish community organization where students socialize over delicious kosher food, volunteer in meaningful community service projects, and celebrate Shabbat and holidays in a warm, and nurturing environment. Through such programs as Candy Apple Making for Rosh Hashanah, our tzedek speakers, and our festive weekly Shabbat services and home cooked dinners, Hillel aims to build and nurture a pluralistic Jewish community, to provide opportunities for Jews on campus to meet one another and to explore the various meanings of Jewish identity. We welcome all students and hope you will join us! Hillel hosts a weekly Shabbat service and dinner for all students at the Claremont Colleges. The services are usually led by students. Services are followed by blessings over the challah and wine, and a kosher meal. Meals are usually home cooked in our kosher kitchen.

First, Love
first, love seeks to grow a community of students at the Claremont Colleges that knows God’s love, loves Him and His Word, and shares that love with the campuses. We believe Jesus has called us to learn to live radically different lives that love God and our neighbors. We host weekly Bible Studies and Discipleship Training Groups for students to learn to follow Jesus by studying Scripture, pursuing God’s mission together, and growing in community. We also encourage students of all religions and backgrounds to join our Exploring Christianity Groups to explore and discuss the claims of Christianity and also to join us in our pursuit of justice in our world.
