Jewish Student Life Coordinator

Khiya Connolly-Sisk (she/her) is so thrilled to be working with such a stellar team as she transitions into the role of Jewish Student Life Coordinator at Ithaca College’s Hillel! Khiya proudly claims both a northern and southern identity (growing up in both Virginia and Upstate New York) and feels a huge sense of home in the gorgeous Ithaca area. Before coming to IC Hillel, Khiya studied Classical Civilizations, Political Science, and World Literature at Hofstra University, and received a certificate in Wellness Counseling from Cornell. Her time in undergrad helped her discover her one true passion: helping students find a home in their college community. In the free time she wishes she had more of, you can catch Khiya devouring books of every shape and size, hiking all around the northeast, and convincing her friends to play nerdy boardgames. Khiya feels honored and inspired to be working with the exceptional students at Ithaca College, and she can't wait to meet more students this fall!
