“In college, the friends you make are made to last a lifetime – this is especially true if those connections are built at a spiritual level. The Society of Buddhist and Hindu Students enables people who are a part of, or who are interested in, those faith groups to interact with others who share similar beliefs and interests in a fun atmosphere.”
—Omar Kalash, ‘17
SBHS is a student organization that provides support for students who identify with the Buddhist or Hindu faith traditions, encourages cultural and spiritual exploration for Allegheny students who do not practice these faiths, and plans educational field trips to Buddhist and Hindu temples.
A Prayer and Meditation Retreat at the center of campus provides space for students of these faith groups to gather and to practice their religion.
