Student Spiritual Organizations
The Office of Service and Spiritual Life currently sponsors a variety of spiritual groups that meet regularly on campus and may also engage in community outreach projects throughout the academic year. Explore your faith with fellow students in a respectful and thoughtful environment.
Baptist Student Union
Maryville BSU is a Non-Denominational Bible Study, focused on His Word, and applying it to our lives, TODAY. In addition to meetings, the group also hosts several student events on campus each semester.
Crusaders on Campus (CRU)
Cru is an interdenominational Christian organization committed to helping to meet the spiritual needs of college students. We do this through small group Bible studies, weekly events like the Source, and conferences and retreats.
Catholics on Campus
This group of students works in close association with the Catholic Newman Center at Maryville University, serving the spiritual needs of Maryville’s Catholic students with opportunities to participate in the Sacraments, fellowship and retreats.
Fellowship of Christian Athletes
The FCA’s Mission is to present to athletes and coaches and all whom they influence the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, serving Him in their relationships and in the fellowship of the church.
Intervarsity is a Christian community/fellowship that establishes and advances students and faculty. We minister to students through group Bible studies, and life changing conferences and events. Our goal is to establish a family-like atmosphere that is comfortable for students to be themselves and build friendships with other students.
Lutheran Student Fellowship
Lutheran Student Fellowship strives to shape college students into Christian leaders by nurturing their faith so that the Gospel of Jesus Christ will be boldly proclaimed through acts of leadership, service, and fellowship within the Maryville University campus and the world beyond.
Maryville Hillel offers a full calendar of social, cultural and experiential education programs, as well as holiday celebrations that are open to all.

We will develop a dynamic, united and welcome community on campus, raise awareness of Islam, and help people become better Muslims. The MSA shall promote unity among the Muslim students, exemplify Islam and its values to Muslims and people of others faiths, or no faith, alike through events and activities, and promote understanding between Muslims and people of other (or no) faiths.
