Come Explore Diverse Faith-Based RSOs on Campus

University Housing will host its third annual spirituality program with a bit of a twist.

Embody the Belief will be from 7-9 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13, in Willard J. Walker Hall Main Lobby, located next to Einstein's. Light snacks and beverages will be provided following the event.

It is part of University Housing's @Home programming series.

At Embody the Belief, students will gain a better understanding of the misconceptions and stereotypes members of different religious groups face in everyday life.

Students will experience an interactive town simulation through the identity of an individual of a certain belief and see what effects their religion has on their day-to-day life.

The program's goal is to raise awareness of various struggles people of different belief systems face while also providing insight on how stereotypes can affect these individuals.

The program is also aimed at dismantling these stereotypes and helping students gain insight from a different perspective while providing them with additional information about different spiritual identities.

Come out and explore the Embody the Belief program!
