Spiritual Life on Campus

Historically, Arcadia maintained relationship with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.); however today the University is independently controlled and ecumenical in spirit. Students are encouraged to join religious and faith-based organizations on campus, many of which are supported as student organizations through the Office of Student Engagement. Should your religion or faith not yet be represented by an existing organization, you may seek to establish one by contacting the Office of Student Engagement.
