Family Orbit

Emma Claire says, "As a senior in high school, my list of college requirements covered available majors, regional temperature, and proximity to a city, but made no mention of religious life. Seeking out a Christian community wasn't on my radar, and I didn't even know American University was Methodist affiliated until I was moved into my freshman dorm. How do I reconcile that with the fact that just this week I spent a total of 17 hours in church and church-related activities, not counting the six hours spent in religious studies classes and the time spent reading theology books for fun?"


Missing Faith

Angela says, "A lot of fuss is made about the “lack” of religion on college campuses. College campuses are stereotypically thought of as hotbeds for atheism, doubting, and just about every vice imaginable. And while there’s some truth to this, this is definitely not the full picture."
