The requirement for the semester is 10 chapel or convo events. Every semester, we program 15-20 events so that students have some choice in what they attend. Students must bring their Goshen College ID with them to convocations and chapels to get credit for attendance. This is a Goshen Core graduation requirement at Goshen College.
Exemptions may be requested from the registrar’s office (email@example.com) for students who are parents of dependent children, fifth-year seniors, or commuting students who do not have a Monday/Wednesday/Friday class before noon.
Students who have internship hours that conflict with the convo/chapel schedule must ask their supervising professor to contact the registrar directly to request a reduction or exemption. See the Frequently Asked Questions link for more information.
If you have a deficit from previous terms, you can erase it by attending more than the required number of events in future terms. If your deficit is too large to overcome in this way, please contact the registrar (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss your options.
