Peer Chaplains & Student Activities

University is a key moment of transition in life. The person you were, the friends that you had, the values that you grew up with are all going to be looked at and experienced in a new way. Some things you will keep, some things you will reform, and other things you will leave in your past.

The peer chaplaincy team is one way for all students to explore questions and make community on campus. Our peer chaplains each take on a project each semester and, through doing so, apply their God-given talents and abilities to befriend, support, and encourage those around them.

University is an exciting time for personal and professional growth, freedom, and inspiration. It can also be a lonely, overwhelming, and stressful time. We hope these more challenging experiences are short-lived for you, and that they lead to greater, more positive things in your life. Maybe more than anything, chaplaincy at Luther College is about you being aware that there is always someone ready to listen and walk with you through any situation. You are never alone. Your questions are welcome! We are not about finding simple answers… we are all about exploring better questions! No question is too simple or complex, and there is no topic off limits.

If you are feeling discouraged, stressed, or simply home-sick, please talk to a peer chaplain or with Pastor Sean.

Our activities are excellent opportunities to combat loneliness, boredom, or stress. Engaging in community is always a good idea. Check out the Events Calendar for activity listings or visit our Facebook page.
