Student Spotlight: Matt Calbo
Student Board President
Why is Hillel important to you?
Hillel is my home away from home. It is a place where I can go to study, hang out with my friends, strengthen my Jewish identity and grow as a leader.
Why did you want to be the Student Board President?
I wanted to give back to a community that has given a lot to me. Hillel was the first place within the larger UConn community where I felt welcomed and I want to be able to provide that same welcoming feeling to other UConn students who also wish to be involved in Hillel.
What are you most excited about for this coming year?
I am looking forward to further integrating UConn Hillel into the greater UConn community by partnering with other student organizations and participating in university-wide events.
