Spiritual and Religious Life offers a number of opportunities for students to balance their academic pursuits with spiritual growth. In addition to regular worship opportunities, Allegheny students can engage in religious groups that provide fellowship, study, outreach, and special programs.
Interested students of all faiths or of none, along with representatives of religious life groups, are a part of Interfaith Fellowship (IFF), which meets regularly for interfaith discussion, community service, and social events. IFF sponsors an annual “Faith Week” to increase awareness on campus of religious issues and matters of faith.
