Student Religious Organizations
While Middlebury has never had any official affiliation with any particular religion, it is a place where most of the world's spiritual traditions are represented—often in the form of a lively student organization.

The Religion Department at Middlebury seeks to acquaint students with the world's major religious traditions, with varieties of global religious experience, and with religious approaches to a broad range of topics and questions. We emphasize the study of individual religious traditions, because we hold that a solid understanding of one is crucial for developing an appreciation for other traditions and for religion as a fundamental human experience. We also maintain, however, that it is important for students to have experience with comparative approaches to the study of religion.
