We thought we’d share with our readers today a ranking of the top public and private universities in America by Jewish population, courtesy of Hillel. So which schools boast the most Jewish students in their student bodies? Wonder no more. We’ve got the rankings for our readers.
Public Universities By Jewish Population
Among public universities, it’s the University of Florida that claims first prize, followed by Rutgers University and University of Central Florida. University of Maryland, University of Michigan, University of Wisconsin, CUNY Brooklyn College, Queens College, Indiana University, and Pennsylvania State University round out the top ten. Next comes Binghamton University, University at Albany, California State University, Michigan State University, Arizona State University, Florida International University, York University, Florida State University, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Arizona University.
Private Universities By Jewish Population
Among private universities, Boston University claims first prize, followed by New York University and George Washington University. Cornell University, Tulane University, Yeshiva University, Syracuse University, University of Miami, University of Southern California, and Washington University in St. Louis round out the top ten. University of Pennsylvania, Brandeis University, University of Hartford, Columbia University, Next comes Northwestern University, Tufts University, Emory University, Northeastern University, and Vanderbilt University.
Ivy League Schools By Jewish Population
The Ivy League school with the most Jewish students after Cornell University is the University of Pennsylvania. Columbia University comes in at 15th, while Brown University finishes at 21st, Harvard University at 27th, Yale University at 29th, Princeton University at 41st, and Dartmouth College at 46th. Do, however, keep in mind the overall size of the student bodies at each of these institutions. As an example, the size of the overall student body at Cornell University is quite a bit bigger than the size of the student body at Dartmouth College.
We share these figures chiefly because we’re concerned about the declining number of Jewish students at Ivy League schools, a topic we recently touched upon and intend to revisit in the weeks to come. So do stay tuned.
