Spiritual Life

When it comes to the options for a spiritual life in college, Hillsdale proves you do have a choice beyond 1) single-mindedly secular; 2) rigidly doctrinaire; or 3) “whatever.” We’re proud of our roots and identity as a Christian college. We’re equally proud that the College’s founding documents celebrate “the inestimable blessings resulting from the prevalence of civil and religious liberty and intelligent piety.” What you believe and why matters here. And whether you gather with others around a seminar table or late night pizza, you’ll quickly develop an affinity for profound, respectful dialogues about faith—its role in our personal lives and in the marketplace of ideas.

Spiritual life on campus is created for Hillsdalians, by Hillsdalians. We don’t have mandatory chapel, faith statement, or an affiliation with a particular denomination. All the many ways to experience faith on campus reflect the lives and moral journeys of people seeking to understand and own their beliefs. Like you.
