Meet the Mirco-Communities

Here at Hillel, there is a community for everyone! Micro-communities are student-led groups untied by common interests such as gaming, sports, and more!

NERF Wars Microcommunity

Do you enjoy fun competition with your friends and/or exercising your second amendment right to bear NERF arms? Then this is the Microcommunity for you! We meet on occasional Saturday evenings for epic NERF battles. Bring your own NERF guns or use one of Hillel's!

Hillel Co-Ed Intramural Sports

Our community bonds over our love for playing sports in a fun way. We want to have a great experience playing sports together and intramurals is a great way to do that. This Micro-community is Co-ed; it is meant for anyone. Our goal is to have fun as a team and maybe win a few games.

Hillel Tabletop Gamers

This Microcommunity is multiple communities in one! We meet every week to play the storytelling-roleplaying game Dungeons and Dragons. Our goal is to create a friendly and openminded environment, spur creativity, and tell a fun and exciting story that we all have a part in building and experiencing. We also play the popular table top card game Magic: the Gathering on Saturday afternoons at Hillel. If you're interested in any sort of tabletop game (board games, card games, etc.) we have someone here looking forward to playing it with you!

Orthodox Jewish Students Micro-Community

We are the students who identify as Orthodox Jews (the collective traditionalist branches of contemporary Judaism), who do the things that Orthodox Jews do, i.e. pray, eat, observe halachot, etc. Our goals as a community is to, well, be a community — which involves quite a lot of things that I am not going to exhaustively list here, but includes sharing common goals and working together to achieve them, supporting each other, and generally being a cohesive and safe and prosperous and happy group within the Urbana-Champaign community.
