Welcome to our NEW SWEET SPIRITS! Brittany Agee, Sade Fountain, Kiersten Garcia, Allison Hassard, Sarah Muth and Miranda Tyler! We are so happy to have these girls join the Sweet Spirit Crew!
The Sweet Spirits are a community of students who serve as a leadership team to promote spiritual values and plan spirituality programs on campus. Their work includes organizing annual events such as the Unsung Heroes Banquet, Gospel Fest and the Religious Life Fair, as well as leading ecumenical services.
Members also maintain the interfaith prayer room, located in the College’s Memorial Chapel. The room is stocked with a variety of literature and includes a “prayer mural” on which students can write prayers.
Sweet Spirits’ purpose is to draw attention to spiritual life as an important part of the human experience rather than teaching any particular religious doctrine. All upperclasswomen in good academic standing are eligible to apply, and students from all faith backgrounds are welcome.
