Thriving at Christendom

Students come to Christendom from a variety of educational backgrounds—private, public, and homeschool—and from all across the nation and different countries. While students, they study an integrated Catholic liberal arts curriculum, and develop true friendships with their professors and fellow students. Rather than sitting on the sidelines as spectators, students become active members of the college community, taking part in everything from student government to varsity sports, event planning to internships, theatrical performances to service projects, and everything in between. Christendom students also grow in their knowledge, love, and practice of the Catholic Faith, and can frequent the Sacraments on a daily basis, thus helping them to live a life of virtue as they grow in wisdom. Christendom students do not simply survive college—they thrive.

“I see and talk with students my age who go to other universities and realize that at Christendom, I have learned how to think—really think—in a rational and critical way to solve the problems of everyday life.  I’ve also learned how to balance and prioritize all aspects of my daily life–from academics, to athletics, to my spiritual life and social life—so as to grow as a whole person and glorify God through the gifts He has given me.”

“Having faith and morals is extremely important in this setting. I believe that my education in philosophy helped me for this position, because it allows me to look at the picture of my patient’s health as a whole and helps me try to understand different patients’ beliefs about how they view their health and what they are or aren’t willing to do as it pertains to that.”

“I’ll state here what I want to say to every student who is graduating [from high school] and their parents. It’s a warning and a call for wisdom. … And there’s more you can do…. To counter so much progressive indoctrination in American culture, you can also have your graduates consider attending a private, conservative or Christian college or university, such as… Christendom College.” (WND.com)
