Cardinal Newman Society Annual List of Orthodox Catholic Colleges


Today The Cardinal Newman Society published a new, second edition of The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College, a unique resource for parents and students seeking a faithful Catholic education.

This comprehensive Guide recommends 21 colleges and universities in the United States plus eight international, online and unique programs based on the strength of their Catholic identity. In addition, the Guide includes several essays to help families better understand the search for a strong Catholic college.

The culmination of four years of research and hundreds of interviews, this edition of The Newman Guide builds substantially on the successful first edition which was published on All Saints Day in 2007. All told more than 8,000 copies of that edition were distributed to Catholic leaders and families. . . .

The online version of the college profiles include additional campus pictures and videos, open house and other event details, as well as a form to request admissions or financial aid information directly from the college. . . .

A new section in this edition of The Newman Guide recommends international, online and unique Catholic colleges and programs to help provide options to families looking for non-traditional ways to obtain a faithful Catholic education. . . .

In addition to the recommended college profiles, The Newman Guide includes several essays to help families put the search for a Catholic college in context. . . . [more]

We need one in Minnesota! Or at least in the 5 state area, can you do something about this Ray? :)

You want me to start a college, Sanctus?

Hmmm. Let's see, what could I teach? Definitely not Chemistry. We have a couple of chemical engineer bloggers (female) here, but I'll have Swissy do that.

I majored in Poly Sci, but I'm much better at opinions than I am at facts or theories. Mitchell of Our Word ran for office once land got trounced. Good for humility. He can take Poly Sci.

I'd guess I'd better be in charge of campus maintenance, I was House Manger a couple of years running (nobody else wanted the job) when I matriculated (I did learn a few big words, though).

I've got a nice, but small book collection. I guess I cold be librarian, too.

Of course Cathy will be mad; she has an MLS. But we can put her in charge of our Evangelization program. The only thing better than a convert is a revert!!! [Takes one to know one!]

Whadda you wanna teach, Sanctus? Movies, film and dramatics, of course!

Terry in Art, certainly, but no "modern art" styles will be permitted in the curriculum.

The I.C. definitely would have to be our theologian; kind of a lateral transfer for her, but she'd have to start working on tenure all over again.

Vincenzo definitely would head our digital art department.

Laura the Crazy Mama will be our Home Economics prof! Unless she is on pregnancy leave again.

Adoro will head our Public Safety curriculum (Law Enforcement, Fire Protection, Liability Insurance; a triple header; couldn't ask for more) She might double in the summers by heading our Creative Writing Program.

Yup, Sanctus, I think we have the nucleus of a college that will be Minnesota's first Cdl. Newman Society award winner!!!

What about St. Thomas or St. Kate's? This settles it - I'm pulling my daughters out for good!

I didn't know you had daughters! How come you never introduced me. You know "I'm eligible, swave & de-bon-yer, and all that."
