Carnegie Mellon University: Spiritual Development Month

Carnegie Mellon University celebrates November as Spiritual Development Month. According to a university official, this gives the school a 'chance to highlight all the different faith traditions taking place on campus.' This year, the Unitarians, Jewish and Hindu societies have organized festivities.
