    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!

    1. 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!

    2. 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!

    3. 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.

      • 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 🙂

    4. 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.

    5. 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.

    6. 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.
