Our religious and spiritual life is as diverse and vibrant as our student body.

With 14 student organizations and the support of the Chaplains' Office, we hope that 鶹ý will be a spiritual home for all. The Chaplains' Office serves the entire college community, supporting a wide range of opportunities for worship, interfaith dialogue, fellowship, social action, and service.

At 鶹ý:

  • We affirm everyone's dignity and worth
  • We support all religious and spiritual traditions
  • We value every cultural and ethnic background

Student Organizations

鶹ý has a variety of student-led organizations representing many religious traditions. Each group develops its own programming which contributes to the diverse spiritual and cultural life on campus. All of these groups are supported by campus ministers or advisers from local congregations, faith-based organizations or the college community.

Opportunities & Resources

鶹ý encourages students to explore the religious and spiritual dimensions of life in a global context.

The Chaplains' Office provides opportunities for international experiences, faith-based internships, and ministerial fellowships for service and leadership.
