Campus Ministry for Graduate Students

Living a life that matters.  It’s something each of us desires.  We want to know that our life makes a difference.  Discovering how this will take shape in your life is part of what your graduate school education is all about. Campus Ministry provides opportunities to explore who you are and who God is through a life of prayer and worship, a life of service and justice, and a life of spiritual growth.  Whether you have a strong connection with your religious tradition or are exploring various spiritual paths, Campus Ministry has something for you to develop a life that matters.
