Kenyon provides a range of diverse opportunities to help you experience and grow your spiritual life, including religious services, humanitarian interest groups and other meaningful activities.

“We help students gain a greater understanding and appreciation for beliefs other than their own and respect for others who hold those beliefs. We honor the human spirit and nurture its development.”
