Does Carleton have regular religious services on campus? The Admissions Office says:
Carleton's Chapel holds weekly worship services and special religious holiday celebrations representing a variety of faiths. There are numerous student religious organizations on campus, and the College's Office of the Chaplain also helps to facilitate student participation in local congregations throughout the community.
Emily Balczewski '16 says:You know you're at Carleton when you have a perspective-shifting, impromptu conversation with a Buddhist, a Muslim, a Christian, and an Atheist about religion and faith--and it's a perfectly normal Monday night.
