About Us

We believe that at the foundation of all religious life is community – the connection between individuals and the growth that comes from experiencing and sharing faith together. RSL provides advising, support & resources for over 23 diverse student religious organizations on campus that serve over 1900 students from across faith traditions, denominations and backgrounds. Groups may be centered around a shared tradition, connected to a national organization, or focused on a special interest or project such as music, dance, mission work or special events. Each group provides their own unique way for opportunities of worship, study, service and/or learning. We hope that you can find a community on campus that feeds your spirit. If you need help please feel free to come by the RSL office.
