Meet awesome student organizations!
Each week we highlight two religious student organizations. Joining a group or attending their events is a great way to connect with fellow students and find a supportive community on campus. 
Learn more and get in contact with these groups here!

Latter-Day Saints Student Association

The LDSSA is apart of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We sponsors a weekly Institute of Religion class at which we study the scriptures and fellowship one another. We invite you to join us!

Zen Meditation

In this group we practice basic mindfulness, learning to reside in the present moment and experience it fully.  An ancient practice that originated in Asia and is now being widely used in the West, mindfulness is not an effort to escape the place where we are, nor the pursuit of  special, exotic states of consciousness.  Instead, it is the cultivation of openness, acceptance and equanimity, enabling us to become more at peace with our lives. Parts of our experience that we have suppressed or pushed away are allowed back into our awareness.  This process of self-reconciliation enhances our capacity to handle stress and awakens renewed zest for life. Instead of divorcing the “spiritual” and “emotional” dimensions of our lives, we allow a time for personal sharing of our inner experiences, thus creating a small, supportive community. Zen Meditation meets weekly on Wednesday mornings for instruction and meditation.
