Student Groups

We recognize that Campus Ministry is a perfect fit for some students and not a great fit for others. Student religious groups add to the diversity of spirituality on campus and offer you different styles and forms of prayer.

Especially for our non-Christian students, some of these groups can help connect you with local people and groups who can support you in your particular religious tradition throughout college. We also know that you grow while you're in college. Try different groups and see which is the best fit for you.
