Religious and Spiritual Life

Nestled in a small pine grove overlooking a tranquil pond, Muller Chapel offers a dose of serenity amidst the bustle of the Ithaca College campus. The chapel is home to faith-based communities at the College, as well as a variety of other spiritual and artistic endeavors.

In addition to worship services, students can participate in various faith-centered clubs and organizations, including Hillel, Habitat for Humanity, and the Amani Gospel Singers. Each of the religious communities on campus participates in service and social justice activities in the city of Ithaca and beyond; past efforts have sent students to work with the poor and homeless of the South Bronx and to build and repair homes in Nicaragua.

The Interfaith Council promotes cooperation, respect, and goodwill between all religious communities at the College. The council sponsors speakers, retreats, and presentations aimed at bringing students of all beliefs together to better understand issues of ethics, morality, and spirituality. The College chaplains work with and are available to help students from across the spectrum of faith.

About Muller Chapel

Muller Chapel and its adjacent pond are a most distinctive pair of landmarks on the Ithaca College campus. Reaching skyward, the chapel is beautiful both from within and afar. The structure was erected in 1976 and is surrounded by a commemorative brick walkway engraved with the names of many of our donors. With an amphitheater-like sanctuary warm with natural wood tones, the chapel is truly a welcoming and soothing space.
