Organizations

Student religious organizations are student led and seek to meet the needs of a variety of students in our diverse student body.

The Chaplain is always ready to guide students of all faiths in establishing an organization for pursuit of their own spirituality.  We need to know from students when there is a group ready to get going!  If you are a student interested in organizing new groups or have additional ideas contact the Office of Spiritual and Religious Life at x 1527.
