Religious Life in College
Many students worry that they'll need to sacrifice their religious life in order to succeed in their college life, but this just isn't the case. The vast majority of colleges serve a very diverse student body, and have many avenues through which students of all religions can practice their faith and connect with their religious communities.
Your school will likely have an interfaith center which accommodates students of all religions and backgrounds. This is good place to visit first. Here, you'll learn where services for your religion are held and at what time. These services may take place on-campus, or there may be a nearby church, synagogue, temple, or mosque with an established relationship with your school. In addition, most schools provide facilities for their students' daily religious practices, such as rooms for daily prayers and meditations.
Many on-campus religious services are open to the general public. This can be a great way to meet new people and learn about other religions, cultures, and ideas.
If you can't find religious services which fit your needs, talk to your school's administration. They'll help you find what you're looking for, or even help you establish something new. This can be a great service to the campus community, and will help you get in touch with other members of your religious community.
Your religion is naturally an important and sacred part of your life. Colleges recognize this, and will help make sure your needs are met.
