I want to go to college, but my parents say it’s not right for a Christian girl to go. They said I can go. Just not one I have to live at. What do I do? Go and maybe disappoint them? Or listen to my parents and be unhappy?

Can you find a compromise that works with what you want to do and also satisfies your parents’ concerns? Such as, if you want to go to a college away from home, could you find a Christian family to live with?

That’s what I was thinking. Or maybe just going to a Christian college. But I don’t know. I just want everyone happy.

I go to a Catholic college and it has been really great for me spiritually. If they are afraid of living on campus with guys, there are all girl college out there. Or go to a Christian college with strict rules. At my college the guys aren’t allowed inside the girl’s apartments, and vise versa. The only exception is filming, I go to a film school, but the school has to know and someone from student life has to be there.
Personally, college taught me how to cook, clean, live with others, care for myself, time management. Really good skills when you have your own family.

It is definitely not a sin to go to college if you are a christian girl!! God loves your desire for further education — that’s why He put it in you when He created you! Now, as for your parents, ask them why they feel women should not attend college. Remind them that college is a beautiful thing that can mature you into an adult — if you use it the right way, not for partying! Keep praying for their understanding but ultimately do what Christ wants you to do, even if it contradicts your parents.
