Balancing school work and faith; the challenge of a full-time Christian student
The life of a full-time student demands a heightened level of multitasking, which can be difficult to grasp. An article published in The Diamondback yesterday evening discusses the difficult balance between school work and faith, which many Christian students at the University of Maryland face. Maryland's University of Christian Outreach chapter launched a three-part series, which extended from October toNovember, titled "How to Live as a Christian." The series included talks centered on time management and balancing busy student life with daily religious practices.
Similarly, there is a nationwide movement to strengthen religious ties on public university campuses. Yesterday, Lilly Endowment Inc. announced its decision to provide $3.89 million in grants, which will be distributed to 53 on-campus ministry organizations. The grant money is intended to help campus ministry chapters develop new programs, strengthen existing programs and recruit new members. This is the third round of grants from the Lilly Endowment Inc. The Lilly Endowment's president describes campus ministries as playing a crucial role in students professional and personal lives, which is why he continues to provide grants for university chapters.
