An online survey, which was conducted during the spring and was sent out to 1,800 students nationwide, has delivered interesting results on how college students feel about religion.
Researchers from Trinity College in Hartford, Conn. found that students divide themselves into three different categories based on religion: religious believers, spiritual and seculars. A majority (70 percent) of the religious believers are Christian. While very few Americans identify as atheists or agnostics, most of the seculars and a third of the spiritual group considered themselves as “nones,” which means they do not identify with any religion.
"Nones" in America have increased from 15 percent in 2007 to just under 20 percent in 2012.
