As the Unification Theological Seminary (UTS) reaches its 40th year, faculty and staff are preparing for an unprecedented, three-day event to mark this milestone. That includes graduation of undergraduate as well as graduate students, a reception, a thinkers’ conference for alumni on Sunday and Monday, a documentary slide show, and an open discussion with President Hugh Spurgin– all at the Barrytown campus where the Founder began the school in September 1975.

A visitor to the chapel of the Unification Theological Seminary (UTS) in Barrytown today will open the door, and the first thing that hits him or her will be the light. His or her eyes will be drawn to shafts of light streaming down from 16 brand new, double-paned, tinted, argon-gas filled, segmented windows.

On August 27th, 2007 new and returning students arrived at UTS' Barrytown campus in New York to register for this years' fall semester.

With the new concentration in Inter-Religious Peacebuilding for the MRE program, coupled with interfaith scholarship opportunities, it may come as no surprise that this new term has brought a nember of new international students.

Costa Rica, Kenya, Poland, Oceania, Korea and Japan are only some of the countries new students are from. We wish them all the best and are looking forward to what is shaping up to be a very interesting experience.

This term UTS is starting a small group program for students, with the involvement of both faculty and staff advisors. Apart from meeting regularly for the purpose of spiritual developmemnt and strengthening of interpersonal relationships, the new student groups will also each be hosting at least one weekly chapel service, in which all students faculty and staff will partake together.
