Religious Life


College is a time to ask big questions and explore your deepest convictions. We acknowledge the importance of faith, both in our individual and collective lives, and strive to provide opportunities for members of the Dartmouth community to express and explore their faith in a supportive community. No matter what questions or convictions you bring, there is a place for you at the Tucker Center.

Never before have I been in such a religiously diverse community with such extensive resources to guide me in my spiritual journey... ('17)

Diverse Faiths at Dartmouth

The Tucker Center celebrates the religious diversity at Dartmouth and supports students who wish to deepen their faith. The United Campus Ministry (UCM) is made up of 25 different student religious groups, representing Jewish, Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Buddhist and other faith traditions.

My favorite Hillel memory is my first Passover at Dartmouth. Two of my friends and I decided to put together a Haggadah (a book used for the Passover Seder) that would reflect the diversity and culture of our community. The three of us drew on our own traditions as well as research that we had done to put it together. We spent just about all of spring break putting together the Haggadah and finished it the morning of the first Seder. That night, nearly 250 students came to Hillel for our Seder. Leading the Seder that night was one of my favorite memories. It was amazing being able to use a Haggadah that we had created ourselves and to be able to lead a Seder for so many students, both Jewish and non-Jewish, who had come together to celebrate Passover as a community."
