We're a group of students focused on how religion affects our world and how the world affects religion. We hold discussions, seminars, movie nights, cultural events, and other activities that pique curiosity and promote understanding about various religious traditions.

You don't have to be a Comparative Religion major or minor to join. There are no GPA or service hour requirements, and no fees. We just like to have fun and learn!
