All Religions. All Identities. All Humans.

Everyone is welcome at the Truitt Center. This means you are invited to come as you are.

We welcome community members of all and no religious traditions in our spaces. Our students are Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Bahai, Unitarian Universalist, Wiccan, Jain, Sikh, Atheist, Agnostic, questioning, seeking, learning, & more.

The Truitt Center for Religious and Spiritual Life provides an on-campus environment to engage with meaning and purpose, and explore diverse religious, spiritual, and ethical traditions, worldviews, and identities.

Buddhist Life

Annual Buddhist programming includes the creation of the Green Tara Sand Mandala, a Tibetan Buddhist symbol that fosters both healing and peace for those who view it. Students interested in Buddhism are encouraged to explore this tradition as a religion and/or as a mindful path of self-cultivation.

Catholic Life

The goal of Catholic Campus Ministry (CCM) is to help students in their faith journey while at Elon and have fun along the way. CCM believes that faith gives life, and sharing faith gives life its meaning. Through small groupĀ gatherings, regular Mass and holiday worship, fun and meaningful weekend retreats, and service and volunteer opportunities, CCM builds community and connections. The campus Catholic community has a dedicated building, the Newman Center, located on South Campus.

Hindu Life

Through events, programs, and annual celebrations of Diwali and Holi, Hindu students on campus are invited to engage with their faith and build community. The Truitt Center provide space for all students to discover Hindu traditions, cultures, and beliefs. There are also student clubs and organizations that support Hindu students.

Jewish Life

Jewish Life at Elon supports the communities of Hillel and Chabad. Hillel is open to all Jewish students from all backgrounds, of all identities, and all levels of observance. Hillel students gather at the Sklut Hillel Center for meals, to learn more about being Jewish, to celebrate Shabbat and the holidays, get engaged in social justice work, do homework, and spend time with friends or the staff. Chabad* is an off-campus community organization which offers fun and meaningful activities, Shabbat and holiday observances, and learning.

Muslim Life

The Truitt Center provides space for Muslim students to build community, engage with their faith, celebrate holidays, and participate in weekly Jummah prayer services in our Muslim Prayer Room. Muslim Life hosts annual observances of Ramadan and celebration of Eid, as well as providing opportunities for the campus community to learn about Islamic beliefs, practices, and varied expressions of Muslim culture.

Protestant Life

Elon’s Christian groups include a wide range of worship styles and theological perspectives. Our Christian students are diverse: some are involved in interfaith dialogue, others practice yoga and meditation, some are active in service and global missions, and others are deeply committed to justice and peace-making. Each week there are multiple opportunities for worship, fellowship, prayer, and bible study.

Secular Life

The Truitt Center is a space for students of all and no religious and/or spiritual identities. Atheist, Agnostic, Secular, Humanist, questioning, seeking, and skeptical students are all welcome in our space and at all of our programming. Nonreligious students build community around shared ethical values, meaning, and purpose.
