Religious and Spiritual Opportunities on Campus

There are several opportunities each week for worship, religious observance, or other spiritual practices on-campus while school is in session during the fall and spring semesters.

Numen Lumen: A Thursday Inspiration

Thursdays, 9:50-10:20 a.m.    Numen Lumen, Sacred Space, Numen Lumen Pavilion
Numen Lumen is a time and space to take a break from the busyness of the week and refresh the spirit. It is not a “worship service,” but a time of reflection with musical or artistic performance provided by students, faculty, staff, or special guests. Refreshments are served following Numen Lumen. This year's theme is: "The Company We Keep: Stories of Welcoming and Hospitality in Our Community."


Multi-faith Opportunites

These spiritual opportunities attract students from diverse traditions (religious and non-religious).
