The group’s website says the history of Western civilization “shows us that most social and moral progress has been brought about by persons free from religion.” The public university’s new dorms are intended for students of any religion who want to incorporate faith in their collegiate experience. The dormitories give preference to students who maintain active spiritual lifestyles and are actively engaged in a campus faith-based organization. Students who choose to live in the 376-bed facility are required to “be respectful of diversity,” engage at least semi-annually in a community-service or community-learning project and maintain a minimum 2.5 grade point average. Alcohol and illegal drugs are forbidden, as they are in all of the university’s housing. The faith-based dorms feature a 2,300-square-foot Newman Center or Catholic ministry leased by the Catholic archdiocese in Mobile. It also has a small chapel and an office for the local priest.
