The Open House
The Center for Religious and Spiritual Life is dedicated to fostering religious understanding and spiritual enhancement within the Denison community. We support experiences for the care and expression of all recognized religious traditions on campus. In celebration of our diversity, we also offer inter-religious experiences and dialogue which are central to the mission of the College.
