The Susan B. Harris Chapel, a memorial for the wife of Young L. G. Harris, was built in 1892 and remains today as the oldest building on campus. The chapel is located at the heart of campus that we might remember to keep the college attuned to the heart of God. Today, Religious Life at Young Harris College is about the holistic formation of students’ hearts through passionate worship, hands through service, and minds through the classroom and extracurricular religious activity. In the Office of Religious Life, students are challenged to deepen their own faith development, oftentimes by experiencing other traditions, denominations and schools of thought. YHC students have the opportunity to engage with their peers, staff and faculty almost every day of the week through the diverse religious life groups represented on campus. Our groups are student led so that our students will leave college as empowered leaders in their own faith traditions and not merely passive consumers of God. I am honored to serve and work alongside so many talented students in the Enchanted Valley.
