alumni establish jewish presence at wayne state

Several Hillel alumni are founding members and active leaders of the AEPi fraternity, now in its second year on campus at Wayne State University. At a recent fraternity dinner, Dr. David Strauss, the Dean of Students, spoke highly of their engagement on campus, referencing them as "true mensches."

"That was really special to hear," said parent Karen Rosenberg, who attended the dinner.

The alumni are Stuart Baum (2011), Sam Grand (2012), Jeremy Rosenberg (2013), David Sable (2010), Adam Weinbaum (2013), and Nisim Nesimov (2013).
