Religious & Spiritual Life
Are you interested in diving deeper into your spirituality at Denison?
Denison students come from many different perspectives, traditions, and backgrounds. We support and 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 the campus, including your questions, doubts, and a desire to learn more.
Want to dive deep into a spiritual or faith tradition? Would you like to learn from different faiths and perspectives in dialogue with others? At Denison, opportunities to observe, practice and engage are here for you!
All are welcome at 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 traded coffee or tea, and say “Hello” to everyone on our staff! And check out the many opportunities to learn, grow and cultivate your spirit while at college!
