Additional Student Life Programs
Communal meals, communal spaces, and communal endeavors: life in Swift Hall (and beyond).
Our Wednesday Lunch program is a Div School tradition – but it's open to all. Join us midday in the middle of the week for warm food and a talk. Sit at any table.
Thirty minutes to relax, reflect, and be in community. Weekly speakers respond to a theme, which changes quarterly.
Open Space is open to all; Tuesdays from 12:30-1pm in the beautiful Bond Chapel. Bagels, coffee, and optional conversation to follow.
"DDH" offers a residential scholarship program offered in cooperation with the University of Chicago Divinity School and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). There's also a Monday dinner!
Whether through attending an event, making a donation, or connecting with other members of our community, students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends are a critical part of our school.
