DLC to include "sanctuary where people can go to meditate or pray"

The Digital Learning Center will feature a very analog idea: A quiet room for students to meditate or pray in. UVSC's chaplain Linda Walton has been angling to get an interfaith chapel on campus for years. This isn't quite that, but probably as close as the campus will come.

There might be a little dust up over the fact that a group or individual could step up and put money towards naming rights of the room. The possibility exists that a particular religion could buy the naming rights to the room, setting off plenty of a church and state alarm bells. That seems remote and this is probably a non-issue.
