The Interfaith community is an opportunity for Ithaca College students to explore and expand their understanding of their own faiths and others’ faiths. The community emphasizes respect for differing perspectives, focuses on service through the lens of interfaith, and explores how faith plays a role in the college experience. Many students feel a stigma towards “religion” (as opposed to spirituality); this community acknowledges the diversity of how Ithaca College’s students live their faith and serves to help us all learn from one another
The Interfaith community is located on the 2nd floor of Terrace
5 and is co-ed by door. Residents who choose to live in this
