“The academic study of religion is different than going to church. When speaking about faith, we preface that faith is the 'lens' we are looking through. This is really important because we have so many students of various faiths or religious traditions on campus. A college setting is good preparation for how to speak respectfully and to ask questions in a way that offers validity.”

-Moriah Reichert, 宗教, Class of 2019
