Religious & Spiritual Life

Events & Activities

The Office of Religious & Spiritual Life offers numerous programs and events over the course of the year. Many of these have a "community service" component, and are better described on the Volunteer page.  The upcoming events are listed below: 

OasisPlease join in one of our semi-regular drop-in "programs" -- OASIS: A FAIR TRADE, COFFEE, CHOCOLATE AND CONVERSATION FOR FREE.  We host a "refreshment in the desert" table on the Driscoll Bridge for a few hours, pour Fair Trade coffee, provide a bite of Fair Trade chocolate (both dark and milk), and we're happy to talk about ANYTHING you like!  Stop by!  Dates and times are found in the calendar below. 

2nd WednesDays


On the 2nd Wednesday of each quarter, we gather to reflect on a question "of the moment".  This fall, given all that has befallen us, it seems VERY appropriate to look for, and share, ideas of finding hope.

Join us on the morning of September 20 for an interfaith ceremony, followed by a (free!) breakfast and conversation.

The ceremony will be at 8:00 am at the Holocaust Memorial/Social Action Site (just east of the Anderson Academic Commons, under the Buchtel Bell Tower). The breakfast will follow immediately (8:30am) in the Special Events Room of the AAC.

Both are FREE and open to all. We ask that you RSVP if you're planning on attending (so that we can feed you appropriately!)!
