Here’s an interesting article about spirituality
and religiosity amongst college students.
College can be religious experience
Survey finds spirituality influencing many students’ political and social views
By the time Laura Conrad arrived at Carnegie Mellon University for her freshman year, she had lost interest “in all that religious stuff” from her Jewish day school background in Newton, Mass.
But a funny thing happened to Conrad on her way through college: She became more religious. And she discovered that her self-described “liberal” views on politics and morals were strengthened by her spirituality.
Some of the sited stats fall in the
“duh” category while others are somewhat surprising. The details of the
study conducted could be helpful to campus religious organizations.
