Religion Happenings On and Off Campus

The Simpson College religion department is a very active department, both on and off campus. Students in the department are encouraged to spend time together and get many chances to do so, from campus forum events, seminary visits, and even May Term courses.

Check this page for pictures of students in the religion department and religion department events.

Religion Department Senior Send-Off, April 26th, 2015

Every year the religion department gathers at a professor’s house in order to see of the seniors who will be graduating from the program. Seniors are given gifts, advice, and a meal for the whole department. This spring, one senior religion major, Dillon Thomas, will be graduating. Check back to this page for pictures of the event, as well as future information about senior send-offs.

 


 

Religion Department Advent Gathering, December 7th, 2014

In December about thirty people gathered at Prof. Everhart’s house across the street from campus for a festive study break and end of semester gathering. We typically have at least one meal-centered event each semester to celebrate milestones in students’ lives.
