Student Religious Groups

Spiritual Life exists at Warren Wilson College to support students on their journeys of spiritual formation, faith development, religious exploration, vocational discernment, and social justice engagement.   Many  of our students seek to connect with traditional religious communities to find a place of belonging and continue their identity formation.  Several religious groups in the Christian, Jewish, Buddhist , Quaker, Pagan, and Unitarian Universalist traditions currently exist on campus.  Some of these groups are student led, others have staff and faculty who serve as advisors.

Throughout the years, other groups have functioned with vitality on campus. These groups, as well as others, can certainly be formed again if there is enough interest within the community. If you have a particular spiritual/religious need that is not being served or you would like to form a new group, please contact Brian Ammons at

In addition to religious groups that meet on a regular basis, Spiritual Life sponsors seasonal rituals, holidays and celebrations. We also provide programing for students who find their spiritual path outside organized religions, by offering opportunities to connect more deeply with oneself, or pursue the bigger questions of meaning and purpose through art, music, yoga, nature, silence, dance, bodywork, sweatlodge, labyrinth walks, and more.  Borrowing from the motto of the United Church of Christ, "No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!"  "Here" is Spiritual Life at Warren Wilson College.
