Congratulations to the graduates of the class of 2018! Our prayers and blessings go with you on your next adventures.
Summer program participants and visitors: Though our schedule is more relaxed in the summer, we are available to assist with finding religious and spiritual communities in the area and connecting with resources on campus for prayer spaces and other accomodations. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
Incoming and prospective students: Curious about the year to come? Want to get a head start on connecting with religious and spiritual life opportunities? We'd love to hear from you! See our staff page for contact information.
Alumni: Here for reunion or just a visit back to the alma mater? Let us know if we can help conect you with religious resources or update you on the exciting growth of our programs.
The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life (ORSL) provides opportunities for members of the Skidmore community to develop their religious and spiritual lives, which are an important part of the educational experience.
We encourage enriching dialogue, meaningful ritual and enduring friendships among people of all religious backgrounds.

The chapel is a beautiful space for worship and wonder, retreat and reflection. When not scheduled for campus events, it is available to the Skidmore community for personal reflection and prayer. Events at the chapel include yoga, meditation, religious prayers and services and events that explore many forms of spiritual and contemplative practice.
When not otherwise reserved, the chapel is normally open from around 6:30 a.m. to around 10:30 p.m. during the school year.
