Religiosity, Religious Acceptance, Social Interaction, and Satisfaction with University Experience
Mohebpour, Ida; Reysen, Stephen; Gibson, Shonda; Hendricks, LaVelle
International Journal of Christianity & Education, v21 n3 p197-212 Nov 2017
We tested a mediated moderation model with the interaction of students' degree of religiosity and perception of the university environment as accepting of one's religion predicting satisfaction with the university mediated by positive social relations. When the university was perceived as accepting of one's religion (vs less accepting), greater religiosity predicted more positive relations with other students and greater university satisfaction. The model was supported with social interactions mediating the relationship between the interaction of religiosity and perceived environment and satisfaction with one's university experience.
