Even though college students may move away from home, they do not have to move away from religion.

Religious leaders at some Boston-area colleges claim they have seen an increase in college students' participation.

Tufts University chaplain the Rev. David O'Leary said he has noticed student attendance at religious services climbing in recent years.

"There has always been a very active religious community at Tufts," O'Leary said. "There has been a steady increase [of student attendance] - every year our numbers are up for all services."
