The aim of this study is to assess the relationship between religion and quality of life in healthy participants, specifically young adults in college. Participants (N=241) completed an abridged 62 item survey by the World Health Organization, the WHOQOL-SRPB, which assess quality of life and religiosity. This experiment found that there is a positive correlation between religion and quality of life in college age students. Due to the strong relationship between spirituality and quality of life, it is determined by the researcher and study design that religiosity and quality of life affect not only elderly or terminally ill patients, but also those participants who lack immediate health threat. Key words: religion, quality of life
