Religious Observances & Holidays
The Office of Religious & Spiritual Life has produced this calendar so that our scheduling of activities can be more sensitive to the religious needs of students, alumnae, faculty, and administrators. While not exhaustive, our list of observances & holidays includes a demarcation of special worship, work, and/or food restrictions, which may affect the ability of members of the community to participate in college events. A notation of a work restriction indicates that the religious obligations of some observant members of this tradition may restrict work for all or part of this day. Our list also includes appropriate holiday greetings for various festivals, as well as a sense of how widely (and stringently) a holiday may be observed, based on campus demographics.
