Letters: How religion and higher schooling can go jointly

Finding religion at university

The June 21 address story, “Is politics the new religion,” states, “Higher instruction, dominated by an more and more secular society, may help clarify why so numerous school-educated younger individuals now reject religion.” The creator provides no proof to substantiate the argument that university attendance is connected with rejection of religious religion. Engagement with increased instruction must not undermine or curtail an individual’s exercise of religion. 

When researching at university in England, I discovered that a sincere determination to religious exercise (in my scenario, Christianity) improved my tutorial function and percolated into all aspects of student everyday living and action. I participated in an on-campus Christian organization approved by the university. My engagement with bigger training served to nurture and maintain my religious religion. A lot of some others have observed the very same.
