Jesus Goes to College

It’s that time of year again: A new academic year begins. So many possibilities for learning about different subjects — and faith.

The most important must-have students can bring to college is Christ.

Christ is needed more than ever on campus. Be the students who bring Jesus there, witnessing with your words and actions and choices — in and out of class. Be active in Catholic student clubs or your local Newman Center. Go to Mass. Attend a Bible study. Share your faith with others.

I studied English literature and pre-medicine in college at a Big Ten university. I don’t remember organic chemistry anymore, although I can tell you the major themes of Jane Austen’s novels. But I well remember the moments of faith in my college days: singing at Mass at the Newman Center, giving a retreat talk on "God Is Love," and cooking for retreatants. I also have fond memories of my Bible study group; those friends remain my friends today.

Make your college career count by keeping faith a part of your campus life. You won’t regret it. You will be blessed if you bring Jesus on campus with you.

The Register’s College Guide is a good place to start.

God bless your college days!
