Hillel at Virginia Tech is a student-led organization that develops programs that are compelling and accessible to as many people as possible.
For some students, this means going to other countries to work with the Jewish communities in those places. For other students, it means going on Taglit-Birthright trips to explore Israel with Israelis and get firsthand experience of the nature of that country. And for others, it means engaging deeply with very different cultures to learn more about themselves and their own identity.
Our student leaders create a broad range of social, cultural, educational and religious events almost every day. Our special initiatives such as Daniel Pearl Music Day, Taglit Birthright Israel trips, Jewish Learning Fellowships, Holocaust: Reading of the Names, and Vitality: Health & Wellness are rooted in Jewish tradition.
At Hillel, we help students connect with their traditions, with each other, and with their community. We are a place where they can ask and discuss questions in a way that adds value to the lives they’re living and the lives of others. Questions like: What’s really important to me? How do I bring balance to my life? Who is my community? What does it mean to be connected to a history? How do I deal with the passage of time? If I ever have children, what do I want to teach them? If I ever get married, what do I want my marriage to look like? We hope you’ll join us.

The MSA is Virginia Tech student organization focused primarily on the cultural interaction between the students on campus. It serves primarily the Muslim students to facilitate their life on campus. Also, MSA helps other students to learn more about Islam, Muslims and their cultural background. MSA tries to promote understanding between different students of different religious and ethnic backgrounds on a rational basis which, as we believe, will help in building a healthier student community at Virginia Tech. The MSA works hand-in-hand to delete any misconceptions about the Muslim people as well as negative stereotypes. It is also a service-based organization in which it facilitates the Islamic practices of its members in every respective possibly way and acts as a venue for Muslims and Muslim Americans to share and illustrate their different aspects of their cultures with their surroundings.

At (NLCF) we have hundreds of people, mostly students like you, come out to our sunday services. We meet at 11am in Colonial Hall inside Squires Student Center, and at 7.07pm at 130 Jackson, our building downtown (quick walk from Squires- see web for directions.) Our teachings are fun, deep and relevant, and our music is alternative and progressive. But that is not enough is it? We also have Engage Groups (think Bible study families on a mission) that meet weekly on or near campus. The big group on Sunday is nice so you can worship and learn about God with lots of people, but Engage Groups are where you can make real friends and make real changes. We go to football games, concerts, we eat out, go on retreats, road trips to conferences and mission trips, and tons more. We like to say that we invest in spiritual growth, invite people to follow Jesus and inspire them to change the world. If you like how this sounds but are looking for more of a blend of students and families, then try out our 10.00am service at 130 Jackson! Check us out or email us.
