9 Signs You’re a Christian in College

I saw how much you girls related to my post “9 Signs You’re a Christian in High School,” so I thought it would be fun to expand on the theme and share with you these 9 signs you’re a Christian in college! Again, some of these will pertain to those in high school, too. Have a laugh!

1. Your married friends tell you that finding a significant other is “all in God’s timing,” and you can’t help but get annoyed by this.


2. When your friends ask if you went to church on Sunday, you reply, “Yes, I attended bedside Baptist with pastor sheets.” Which really translates to, you slept through church. They get it and you all laugh.

3. You’ve had a “DTR” talk with a guy.

4. Dressing up for church is so overrated when you have Uggs and sweatpants.

5. You know what “pk” and “mk” stand for.

6. You truly start to understand the brilliance of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien.

7. Coffee–yes, the black beaned energy drink and NOT the frap–suddenly becomes the thing you thank God for the most.

8. You have had your roommate walk in on you during your “daily devo,” interrupt you and sit down to talk about “that guy.”

9. You no longer have school friends and church friends. Suddenly, they are all one and it’s the GREATEST thing ever!

    I didn’t relate to any of these except that I know what PK/MK are. The writers of these articles are very obviously writing for a specific denomination of Christianity, which is the dominant one in the South US.

    The only one of these that sort of applies to me is #6, but I’ve loved C.S. Lewis and JRR Tolkien since I was in 3rd grade.

    Number 9 is actually my life because I live in a college town with one state university and two smaller colleges and I also go to a church that is made up of mostly college students. Many of my friends and I go to the same college so we hang out all the time. However, I have so much homework and so many classes to go that I don’t have anytime to hang out with anyone else nowadays. As for Number 7, I still don’t drink coffee. Never have and maybe I never will because I don’t like the taste.

    I hope when I go to college, number nine will be true 🙂

    I love this! Whoever said that high school was the best time of your life probably didn’t go to college because I’ve never had so much fun while getting to learn at the same time. These are all true; in college, sleep and coffee are really what you want the most and you stop caring about what other people think.

      Oh my goodness! I love CS Lewis! I’ve had to read a lot of his stuff for school. If you haven’t read it, I would advise your read the book “A Severe Mercy” by Sheldon Vanauken. It is written by one of Lewis’ friends about how he and his wife found Christ and Lewis kinda mentored them in the process through letters (he includes a number of Lewis’ letters in the book.). It’s really neat to read and I loved seeing the friend and mentor side of Lewis. Just thought I’d throw that out there for you 🙂

    Funny! I’m a high schooler but my dad is a prof and my mom used to be at the bible college in town. We’ve lived here for 13 years now so I’ve gotten to know the college lingo a little bit.

    ummm….what does PK and MK stand for??

    Haha! The Pastor at my previous school is actually named Pastor Sheets! This all makes sense to me because I live in a Christian University town and my mother is a dean there. Olivet Nazarene University is the bomb.

      Hey, you mentioned Olivet Nazarene University. How cool – I live right by there and have a couple friends who attend. For me though, it’s Milligan College!

    I think this is only applicable for a Christian college. I commute to a public university and can’t relate to pretty much any of these though I’ve gone out of my way to get involved with a few Christian clubs on campus. Funny though!

    i love this! and yes- its so true xD

    but the One Direction picture… it took me (literally, no joke) 5 minutes to get myself to scroll past it. You just HAD to put Liam and Niall (my two favourites from the band) of all the boys in the band!

    overall, great article! i loved it! God bless!

      If you don’t mind me asking, what prompted that response?

      • Eurydice

        Posted by Eurydice on February 16, 2014 at 20:30

        I just didn’t think it was all that funny…or relatable.

    Posted by AllisonGrace on February 15, 2014 at 14:25

    Yep, if you go to a Christian college this is super accurate!

      Posted by Eurydice on February 16, 2014 at 07:12

      Which is why I’m glad I attended secular institutions.

      • Remedy

        Posted by Remedy on February 26, 2014 at 18:33

        This can still be relatable at a secular college. I go to one and have still experienced some of those things. Just depends who you hang around.

    Wow, I’m not even in college yet and I can totally relate to these. Lol

    This was awesome!!!! Though I’m not in college, I could still relate to it!!
