More Muslims Seeking Christian Higher Education in U.S.

Universities' religiosity impacts students' decision to attend U.S. schools.

Christian colleges in the U.S. are welcoming more Muslim students onto their campuses this fall – especially female students, according to the New York Times.

Students are drawn by the schools' religious identities and more traditional values, including same-sex dormitories. They report feeling more at home in small communities, even though the majority of students may not share their beliefs.

CT previously reported on Houston Baptist University's "experiment" in having Muslim students on campus.
