What Connects Us

Three students sitting outside, text reads what connects us

The What Connects Us series is to discuss a topic that is relatable to individuals from various faith- and spirit-based groups. The series is meant to highlight a particular topic or issue, and offer stories, recommendations, and perspectives from different faith and non-faith groups. It is through the diversity of beliefs and experiences where we can see the similarities and commonalities between us.

What Connects Us - Interfaith Relationships

I'm falling in love with someone who doesn't believe in god. It is scary, it is beautiful.

Have you been in an interfaith relationship? Would you like to hear from speakers and students who are ready to share their experience with interfaith relationships? Join us for the FIRST What Connects Us event to learn about the challenges of interfaith relationships, hear recommendations, and listen to and share stories with other students.
