If you are involved in or interested in a particular spiritual path, such as Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Sikhism, or Judaism, we can connect you with student groups to pursue your faith journey. We have particular programs for Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), United Church of Christ, Latter-day Saints, Catholic, non-denominational and other Christian students as well. Finally, our beautiful Wallace All Faiths Chapel, located in the Fish Interfaith Center, is here for your use!
