The life of a college student can be hectic and stressful, but making time for God makes a difference.


MUW offers a variety of religious organizations on campus to encourage students in their walks with Christ. These organizations welcome young people from all backgrounds.


The religious organizations currently on campus are the Baptist Student Union, Chi Alpha, Cross Culture, Let the Word Speak, Uquirk and the Wesley Foundation.


One does not have to be from a specific denomination to join. Students are free to explore each of the organizations to determine which one fits them best.


"Last year was really rough for me, but they (the people in the religious organization) helped me get through a lot," shared Bayleigh Herron, a physical science major.


Being involved in a religious organization on campus benefits students in more ways than one.


First, students experience a welcoming atmosphere of acceptance. When people have a safe harbor to be themselves, they immediately feel at ease.


Second, students cultivate new friendships with one another. Fellowship is a major part of growing together in God.


"The fellowship is amazing. It's great for anyone trying to find a family on campus," stated Herron.


Additionally, students have the opportunity to learn about the Lord and study the Bible as a group.


Bible studies, worship services, missions outreaches, fellowship meals and game nights can be enjoyed by any students who wish to participate.


Service and activity times can be found by asking any leader or member of the organizations.


These times to come together as one and worship God are offered throughout each week. This makes it easy for students to find a service time that works well with their schedules.
