The University believes the spiritual life of the individu­ al student is of upmost importance. Therefore, every student is urged to set aside time for personal devotions. In addition to these personal devotional periods, under­ graduate students meet each Monday, Wednesday and Friday in Chase Gymnasium for a forty-minute chapel service for worship and praise. The graduate schools plan separate chapel programs. The chapel programs include speakers chosen from faculty, alumni, students, visiting guests, musical groups, Christian films, drama and other special events. Each fall there is a Spiritual Emphasis Week. Once each semester the school observes a planned Day of Prayer and informal prayer groups meet as a regu­ lar part of residence hall life. The Torrey Memorial Bible Conference and the Missions Conference are high points in the development in the spiritual life of the student Attendance is required at all of these events.
