CIRP Survey: Religious Preferences and Behaviors

 

2013 CIRP Freshman Survey: Religious Preferences and Behaviors

The CIRP Freshman Survey asks several questions related to students' religious background, views and habits. The information below is based on the responses of fall 2013 incoming first-year students on the Oxford campus of Miami University. Also included are trend data for Miami first-year students for the past 5-30 years and comparison results for students at other highly selective public institutions.

Students' Religious Preferences
Miami students are more likely to be Roman Catholic and less likely to report no religious preference than are students from other highly selective public universities. This breakdown mirrors the results for the religious preferences of students' mothers and fathers. The percentage of incoming Miami students who indicate that they have no religious preference has steadily increased over the past five years, from 14.6% in 2009 to 19.4% in 2014.
