Following Your North Star
At first blush, many may consider spirituality to be connected to some form of higher power. However, spiritual wellness relates to finding purpose, value, and meaning in your life, with or without organized religion. It’s about participating in activities that are consistent with your beliefs and values.
Religious and spiritual groups, such as Campus Christian Fellowship, Hillel, and the Association of Muslims in America, are part of the UI's 600 student organizations.
