The fall semester is wrapping up here at Valpo, as students prepare for the last week of classes, finals, and going home for break. While this time of year can be hectic, it is also a time to give thanks and celebrate the holiday season. At Valpo, celebrations are well underway, and the season of Advent holds many traditions here. This week features our 4th annual Christmas Tree lighting (with fireworks) and annual Christmas Concert.

One of the best ways to decide if Valpo is the choice for you is to visit our campus, and now is a great time to be here. The Arts flourishes here at Valpo and offers a variety of events throughout the holiday season, many of which are held in our beautiful Chapel of the Resurrection (the largest collegiate chapel in the United States and second largest in the world). The Chapel hosts music performances and other services throughout the year, and is more than just a sign of the strong heritage of faith at Valpo — it's a place where people can visit daily to express and experience faith in action.

Valpo is a faith-based, international Lutheran University that is constituted of people from diverse faiths. We welcome this diversity and encourage ongoing dialogue around issues of faith among students, faculty, and staff. We are a richer and more informed campus community because of this diversity. Each student has the opportunity not only to understand more fully what he or she believes but also to explore what others believe and how to interact with them. We see this as an important component of every student's experience.

Attending services at the Chapel is an opportunity, not a requirement. To learn more about worship opportunities, visit the Chapel website. There are numerous other ways to be involved in faith life on campus including opportunities for service, fellowship, worship, and special events.
