FAQ

How do I choose a local church?

Each year during Welcome Week, we host a "church fair," where local congregations come to campus for you to meet them. This year's Celebration of Community and Faith will be held August 18, 2018 from 1-3 pm in the Vara Martin Daniel Traditions Plaza outside of the SUB (Student Union Building). 

You can also access a list of local churches and tips for finding a church by clicking on those links.

How can I check my chapel attendance? 
What are the chapel requirements?
Are there chapel alternatives?

Please refer to our Student Resources chapel page for these answers.

Are there small groups or bible studies I can be a part of?

Our office doesn't host any specific bible studies, but many of our religious organizations and resident chaplains offer weekly groups where you can engage with other students to deepen your faith.

Where can I hold a worship service on campus or find a quiet place to pray? 

There are several sacred spaces on campuses that students can use for quiet meditation and prayer. Some of these spaces can also be reserved for use by student organizations and campus groups. 

You can find a listing of those spaces here. 

Are your programs only for Baptist or Christian students? 

No. There are many programs and groups for students from any or no faith background; several of our programs within Spirituality and Public Life encourage students from different traditions to gather and share stories.
