DOES RELIGION REQUIRE TOO MUCH EFFORT?
Between studying for exams, getting involved in clubs, and taking on leadership positions, college students are becoming ever more busy. With almost no time on their hands, it is nearly impossible for them to find time to participate in their religion. While there are some students who make religion a priority, many do not. This is because many students do not feel connected to their religion, and do not have the urge to become more involved within their religious community. Jewish students will not go to Hillel every Friday night to participate in Shabbat when it is not important to them- rather, they will do something that they think is more worthwhile, such as studying or meeting with a friend. This ties in to another large reason that students do not make the effort to participate in their religion- it will not land them a job upon graduation. What will land them a job, however, are the grades they make and the leadership positions they take.
