In his welcome at Freshman Convocation in September, the Rev. William "Scotty" McLennan, new dean for religious life, offered three signposts for the voyage students were embarking on at Stanford: "First, spiritual development is just as normal as emotional and intellectual development. Second, see yourself as on a spiritual journey, and enjoy exploring the spiritual terrain along the way. Third, understand that returning to your childhood faith with new adult eyes may be one of the most fulfilling spiritual experiences possible, though by no means the only one."
