I'm considering applying to USD because it looks like I could get a good scholarship, but I'm a little concerned about the religious affiliation. I personally am not religious at all. I have Christian friends and I don't hate religion or anything, but I personally identify as atheist/agnostic.
How Christian is the campus? Are all the students very religious? Will the religious affiliation affect my education at USD (am I required to take any religion-based courses?)
As a non-religious student, will I feel left out at all?
Also, how does it compare to Chapman and Pepperdine? More religious or less?
