The Soup and Substance series is a monthly lunchtime meeting during which Elms College staff, students, and faculty are invited to share their spiritual journeys with their peers.

The Catholic Deanery Scholarship and Leadership Program at Elms College recognizes and rewards local students who have displayed outstanding commitment to learning and service in Catholic parishes of the Diocese of Springfield. Religious leaders nominate students to be Deanery scholar and leaders. Nominations are reviewed by a committee of Elms College admission officers, administrators, and faculty memebers.
Our Deanery scholar and leaders are a close-knit group of dedicated, caring individuals. In the Deanery Scholarship and Leadership Program, students flourish personally and as a group of committed leaders. They represent the immense potential that young people have to offer our Church and world.
The Deanery Scholarship and Leadership Program is a vibrant reminder of the historic ties between the Diocese of Springfield and the College of Our Lady of the Elms.
Elms College has relationships with and provides volunteer opportunities at a number of local non-profit agencies and organizations.
We are a Catholic liberal arts college founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Springfield, Massachusetts.
