How To Keep Your Faith When Faced With Student Stress

College is a stressful time in any student’s life. Between studying for tests and keeping up with coursework, you may find yourself with a full plate. However, at this juncture, it’s important to resist temptations and keep your faith. At Faulkner University, we’re dedicated to providing a caring, Christian environment in which our students can grow spiritually and academically. Consult these tips for staying committed to Christ during the college experience.

Daily Devotions

Before your college years, it’s likely that you used devotional practices on a regular basis. Now that you’re in college, these devotional practices can help you keep your faith. As a college student, your schedule may fluctuate from day to day and week to week. No matter what your agenda looks like, carve out time to devote to God every day. Spending time with Him, whether through Bible study or personal reflection, can help you stay grounded in your faith – even as your days get busier and your faith is tested.

Engage in Fellowship

As a Christian university in Alabama, Faulkner University encourages students to connect with local congregations and specialized ministries. To promote spiritual growth throughout college, we also have a number of religious clubs on campus, including Pi Sigma Delta, Pi Tau Epsilon, Christians in Action and Christian Women in Action. Learn more about local churches, ministries, missions and religious clubs.


As busy as the college years might be, you’re never too busy to help a neighbor. Whether you’re studying on campus in Montgomery County or studying online in your hometown in another state, Faulkner University encourages students to participate in community service. Volunteer at your local food pantry, or work to raise money for a cause you’re passionate about. These acts of compassion will serve as a great reminder of the important lessons of your faith and reinforce the value of giving.
