|Destructive Group Information|
Is Your Student Group Destructive?
The University is a world with many decisions, anxieties and emotional pressures. There are times when you may feel homesick, unloved or overwhelmed. You may decide to turn to a religious group for support. You can expect a good experience with most religious groups at JHU. However, at these times of stress, high-pressure religious groups may seek you out and try to recruit you.
Some ways to identify high-pressure groups:Observe the group's responses to you and how you feel. If you can answer 'yes' to three or more of these statements, you should seriously reconsider your involvement.
If you can answer "YES" to any three of these questions, you should consider talking to a campus professional about the group. Remember...
...If you have any questions, call JHU Campus Ministries @ (410)-516-1880.

Meet our Faith Groups!
A simple nine-pointed star is generally used by Baha'is as a symbol of the Faith. It is shown on the banner with the white background. The number nine has significance in the Baha'i Revalation. Nine Years after the announcement of the Bab In Shiraz, Baha'ullah received the intimation of his mission in the dungeon in Teheran. Nine, as the highest single-digit number, symbolizes completeness. Since the Baha'i Faith claims to be the fulfillment of the expectation of all prior religions, this symbol, as used for example in nine-sided Baha'i temples, reflects that sense of fulfillment and completeness.
