The Religious Studies Department offers a broad range of events during the academic year. These activities allow studies to apply lessons from the classroom to life outside the classroom. In addition, students have the opportunity to broaden their understanding of this discipline, and engage in dialogues with many religious traditions. All members of the campus community are welcome to attend these activities. Here are some of the upcoming events that highlight the Elizabethtown College brand of religious studies.

The Meditation Club is a student run organization that meets every Monday during the academic year for a period of mindfulness. Overall, the goal of the organization is to provide a chance for students, faculty, and community members to relax and unwind from the stresses of life. Each meeting focuses on the secular practice of meditation in order to calm the mind. Participants who wish to practice elements of religious traditions in association with meditation, such as privately reciting a mantra, are welcome to do so. Sessions are led by faculty advisor Dr. Jeffery Long, and consist of two parts. The opening segment of the program provides a brief introduction to meditation, which transitions into a 15 minute meditation session.
