Many diverse religious backgrounds are represented in the student body and faculty. Although participation is voluntary, there are many opportunities for religious activity on campus.
Many students find Bethany Memorial Church an opportunity for expression of their religious faith. The Bishop of the Wheeling-Charleston Diocese of the Roman Catholic Church provides a chaplain and chapel for Catholic students. A Priest celebrates Mass each Sunday and on holy days and is available daily for counseling. Jewish congregations in Steubenville and Wheeling sponsor fellowship meetings and entertain Jewish students for the high holidays.
Habitat for Humanity, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and other local charities benefit from volunteers of the Bethany community.
