Religious Organizations

Wellesley’s many religious organizations allow students to maintain their religious and spiritual traditions, or explore new ones, in a supportive community setting.

For many students this serves as a valuable addition to, or integral part of, attending services either in the Chapel or off-campus.

  • Al-Muslimat

    Al-Muslimat is a student-run organization for the Muslim women of Wellesley College. It was established in 1992, and has since been providing Islamic support services for women from various countries, traditions, cultures, and backgrounds. Al-Muslimat serves to represent the voice of the Muslim community and to assure Muslim women of a safe space on campus. Facebook Page

  • Awaken the Dawn

    Awaken the Dawn was founded by four Wellesley students in 1991 who wanted to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to the campus through song. Since then, the group has grown and changed quite a bit, often collaborating with other collegiate Christian a capella groups.  Every Spring Break, Awaken the Dawn goes on tour to participate in additional community service activities and perform in various venues, including Los Angeles, Washington D.C., and Philadelphia.
