The Open House - Center for Religious and Spiritual Life

Are you interested in diving deeper into your spirituality at Denison?

Do you want to converse with others and learn from different faiths & perspectives? Opportunities to observe, practice and engage are here for you!

Denison students come from many different perspectives, traditions, and backgrounds. We celebrate them and offer opportunities to observe them. Whether you are religious, spiritual, or consider yourself to be neither, we are excited about all that you bring to our campus, including your questions, doubts, and dreams.

We welcome you to visit our new location: The Open House — Center for Religious and Spiritual Life, located on the Fine Arts Quad of lower campus at 204 N. Mulberry Street.

Come sit in our wireless Sacred Grounds Café, indulge in some complimentary fairly trade coffee or tea, and say “Hello” to everyone on our staff!
