The Institute of Religion program offered by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints provides religious education for individuals ages 18 to 30.
With a worldwide enrollment of 350,000 students in over 2,500 locations, the institute is a safe haven from the pressure, trails and challenges of the world.
The institute is concerned with education for eternity and provides an opportunity for students to be touched and nurtured by the Spirit through classes and activities.
There are several different ways in which student may join the Institute.
One is to add one of many classes they teach in the Institute building, located at each of the SLCC campuses, as a regular college class.
Another option is to visit their website and register.
Alternatively, those that are already members of the LDS church can automatically join through their website and visit the Institute on campus.
Many SLCC students are already part of the Institute and have felt a difference in their lives.
Brooke Hardman is one such student who has been impacted positively through his experience with the Institute.
“Who ever comes and participates in the program will be blessed and be helped in their lives,” says Hardman.
He mentioned, that he thinks this program is a great and fun experience and opportunity for students, as he has felt the spirit while being taught the lessons in every class he has attend.
Anybody can be part of the program, no matter what religion or culture students are always welcome.
