College students--Religious life
This study took place at a public university located in Glassboro, NJ. The purpose of this study was to determine the religiosity, religious crisis, and spirituality levels of Rowan University undergraduate students. A survey was sent to all undergraduate students at least 18 years old to participate in the study. The instrument is partitioned and includes a religiosity section and a spirituality section with statements and questions. The survey data suggest that Rowan undergraduates fall within the normative range when it comes to religion and spirituality. The responses have also indicated that Rowan students are, as a whole, not experiencing a religious crisis in their lives. Moreover, correlations were found linking religiosity to race and religious affiliation, although these correlations are considered weak. Since Rowan University is a public institution of higher education, it is recommended these results be considered in context, and may not agree with results from a religiously affiliated institution.
