    Yay, time to check religion off the trackie topics list!

    Why do your religious beliefs inform your decision on where you get your education? Is it not possible to go anywhere and remain a Christian?

    "BYU"


    BYU is Mormon by the way, I would think most traditional Christians would interpret that as Non-Christian; or at least an interpretation of Christianity outside of what they may be looking for; unless you are Mormon.

    I'm not religious so I am not interested in starting a religious discussion however; that wasn't the point of my post.

    This may be the strangest request I have heard... what are you thinking about? About attending it? Holding a pro-choice rally at it? Maybe an LGBTQ event?

    Different educational environments are more suitable for certain students' interests and needs. For some students this may religious affiliation, for others it may be a certain academic program or a student group. It is up to the student to determine where they feel they have the greatest opportunity to pursue these interests. Everyone's lived experiences influence their choice in school to some extent.

    Lots of RC schools to choose from.

    If you're distance athlete, look to Providence. It's administered by Dominican friars and has very good academics. One of the most respected coaches in the business has run the program there for over 30 years.

    If you're a middle distance athlete, you can't go wrong with Georgetown; its academics and athletes are excellent.

    Then there's Notre Dame. This school needs no introduction. Not as well established these days in distance, but it seems to be trending in the right direction if you look at their male recruits for next year. Not sure about the girls.

    There are more good lesser known RC schools as well. Look to the Big East conference.

    In regards to scholarships, you'll have to reach out and build a relationship with the coaches. At the right time, ask what type of scholarship opportunities there are for you at the school. Your track times and cross country placement is huge, but don't forget academics are just as important. Study hard and get good grades. Good grades will help the coach get you admitted. Good grades will also help getting academic scholarships if an athletic scholarship is unavailable.

    I hope this helped. Good luck!

    have you ever met a JW kid whose family permits them to compete in organized sports? Cause I have never met one. I think it is strongly discouraged within this group.

    Not all correct. Have coached athletes who were "available" during the week for sports and inter school competition, but not on the weekends. Their religious affiliation did not allow them to play on Saturday , Sundays or both. I even know denominations whose lives are "built" around Sunday observance. No work, no sports, no phone calls.

    Most secular institutions have places for individuals of different religious affiliations to observe their faiths. There are chaplains on most university campuses that work out of the chapels (if you are Christian), many churches have services catered to their university populations; and the majority of public institutions in the country have different student organizations rallied around common ideologies that allow people of different cultural or religious backgrounds to come together for social events. You don't necessarily need to go to a religious school to get your faith needs met. Just look around at what types of organizations are supported by the various Student Unions at our top institutions.

    I am also of the mind that dealing with diversity is a good thing, regardless of where your loyalties lie (religious or not); our public universities in Canada are complex social environments that more accurately reflect contemporary society at large. You will be more prepared for dealing with a diverse work environment by not going to a school that caters to a specific mindset in my opinion. I would argue your faith needs can be fulfilled by any institution you go to if you look for where those outlets are on campus. However, it depends on the individual I guess and what your values are. The Student Unions are more than willing to help you find clubs and organizations that spark your interest.

    Most of our big institutions have student groups that are organized around common ideologies like Christianity (including the different sub-divisions of it), Sikhism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Aboriginal spirituality, and heck even Freedom from Religion Societies. It's all there at pretty much every reputable institution, you just need to look for what you are passionate about to find it. You can even dip into a few of them to see what's being said on the other side of the fence ;)

    Depends what religion it is. If it's Baptist run away. If they have an honor code run away. If neither of the two you'll be fine.

    If you are looking into doing law, this will have an effect in Canada
