Choosing to develop your spiritual life at Albion College is one of the best decisions you can make. On a professional level, graduates who have undertaken a spiritual journey leave with a foundation that supports their work in any career. On a personal level, a depth of spirituality helps graduates grow the strongest friendships and marriages, along with a resource for a life of personal growth.
At Albion College, spiritual life is embraced in all its diversity. For many students, this means developing a philosophy of life and spiritual practices that do not include being religious.
