Spiritual Life Organizations

Jett, Taylor, Lucas at Feet FirstFinding a spiritual community in college is important.  We have several types and styles of gatherings — some large and some small — because we know that spiritual interests and needs are as diverse as the students on campus.  

Whether you come to college with a strong background in your faith tradition or are searching for spiritual meaning and purpose,  you will soon find that you are not alone.  Spiritual life groups offer support, encouragement, and a reminder that college life is not always about the next paper or exam.
