We know that young people’s connections to mainline religions are on the decline, but a UCLA study of students in college reveals that though attendance is declining, spirituality is on the rise. The study also discovered that students become increasingly more liberal in their stance toward religion. We take a closer look at the study and at whether or not something similar is happening on campuses around Charlotte.
