In my last post I talked about a recent survey that found that in some ways more educated people are also more religious. Another day, another survey, but with a somewhat different twist.
As part of its 2012 “The Best 376 Colleges” survey, educational services company Princeton Review interviewed 122,000 students at 376 colleges and asked them to rate their schools and campus experiences. Besides questions about “Most Conservative/Most Liberal Students,” “Best Professors,” and “Great Financial Aid,” the firm also asked students to respond on a five-point scale as to whether they agreed or disagreed that other students on campus were religious.
The top 5 with the “most religious” students:
• Brigham Young University in Utah
• Hillsdale College in Michigan
• Thomas Aquinas College in California
• Wheaton College in Illinois
• Grove City College in Pennsylvania.
The top 5 with the “least religious” students:
• Bennington College in Vermont
• Reed College in Oregon
• Bard College, Vassar College, and Sarah Lawrence College, all in New York.
