Most Popular Campus Faith Groups
When it comes to college there are a lot of different things that make headlines. When tuition rates are raised, you hear about it. When there is a tragedy involving a student or a party gets out of control, you hear about it. Something you don’t hear a lot about, however, is students practicing and growing their faith on college campuses.
College has gained a reputation for being a place where students can begin their adult life through furthering their education and meeting new people. Something most college students do a lot of is socializing. Whether it is through parties, joining of sororities and fraternities or getting involved in on campus activities, meeting people is not hard to do. For those that want to meet people while they grow in their faith, typically, there are avenues for that as well.
No matter what your beliefs or religion, there is probably someone like you on campus. There are several popular faith groups available at college campuses throughout the country and if there’s not a group available that meets your needs, you may be able to start one. If that is the case, you can get information from your college on the requirements and work to start a group for the students on your campus.
No matter where you go to school, you don’t have to leave your faith behind. Having a group of like-minded people to meet with and talk to may even help you enhance your study habits and success in college. Some of the popular faith based groups that you might find on a college campus include:
- Hillel/Jewish Student Organization
- Muslim Student Association (MSA)
- Catholic Student Association (CSA)
- Baptist Student Union
- Students for Christ
- Christian Seventh Day Adventists
