Religious revival on college campuses predicted

Since the publication of "God and Man" in 1951, the abandonment of traditional religious belief has been more pronounced at elite colleges than in the population at large, he said, citing polls that show more than two-thirds of all Americans pray every day and Bible study groups have grown. And what is ironic about this campus revival is that it is, in part, a rebellion by the children and grandchildren of the baby boomers who dropped out of traditional religion, Dr. DiIulio said. "College students say religion is important to their lives," Dr. DiIulio said. "Every major campus-based survey says students are interested in talking about God and want more resources."
