Spirituality, religious identity, and spiritual exploration are crucial parts of any liberal arts education. Here at Alma College, we value who you are and what you believe. While Alma College is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), our religious diversity is evident in the variety of religious expressions found on campus. The Spiritual Life program seeks to be a center for all students, staff, and faculty in the practice of their faith in a safe, encouraging, and uplifting environment.
The Thomas Andison Chapel
Constructed in 1940, The Thomas Andison Chapel is the quintessential icon of Alma College and serves as a symbol of our Presbyterian roots.
As one of the most treasured and well used spaces on campus, the facility hosts numerous weddings per year, weekly worship services, multiple weekly Bible studies, and daily choir rehearsals. It also accommodates a multitude of student and community events throughout the year, including performing arts recitals, guest speakers, movie screenings, and special programs.
While Alma remains deeply proud of its rich Presbyterian heritage, the college’s student body has become much more religiously diverse, and the chapel received enhancements and renovations in 2021 to accommodate students from diverse faith traditions.
