Sostrin began her position at Hillel in early July and has been hard at work getting to know the KU Hillel story and the students who make the organization run. “It was so much fun getting to know everyone at the BBQ,” said Sostrin. “I loved being able to connect with students who are in Lawrence and Kansas City over the summer.”
A Hillel veteran, Sostrin is joining the KU Hillel team after working as the Executive Director of Oklahoma for the past five years. "I am incredibly honored to be joining the KU Hillel team and continuing to create a vibrant community for Jewish students to grow and develop," Sostrin said.
At the BBQ, students played a "Get to Know You" Jeopardy game where Suzy was challenged to answer tough Jayhawk and KU trivia.
"We wanted to make sure she knew her stuff before school started," Ruben said, smiling. It was a great way for students to learn more about Suzy and for Suzy to learn more about us and our school, explained Ruben and Hellman.
"They stumped me a few times," Sostrin said with a laugh. "But Emily and Margo did a great job planning a special night that brought everyone together."
Sostrin is excited for school to start on August 21st and is looking forward to a great year filled with many new adventures and relationships. If you would like to connect with Suzy Sostrin personally, she can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
