"The religious and spiritual community on campus is surprisingly diverse. For example, the Muslim students' group has adherents of several schools of Islamic thought and a range of practice levels. I also see it in terms of my interactions with people from the different regions of the United States and those whose lives are colored with international experience. At Swarthmore, people do not just unthinkingly follow ritual or coerce others to do so. I was able to find a place within the religious community even as I was very concerned with finding an open, critically-thinking, accepting and adaptive community."
