The Center for the Study of Catholic Higher Education, a division of the Cardinal Newman Society, recently published a new list of colleges that they recommend.
The recommended Newman Guide colleges are:
Ave Maria University, Aquinas College (Tenn.), Belmont Abbey College, Benedictine College, The Catholic University of America, Christendom College, The College of Saint Thomas More (Texas), DeSales University, Franciscan University of Steubenville, Holy Apostles College & Seminary, John Paul the Great Catholic University, Magdalen College, Mount St. Mary's University, Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Academy, St. Gregory's University, Southern Catholic College, Thomas Aquinas College, The Thomas More College of Liberal Arts (N.H.), University of Dallas, University of St. Thomas (Texas), and Wyoming Catholic College.I'm partial to the University of Dallas. They have a solid core curriculum. An overseas semester at their own beautiful campus in Rome. Strong faculty. They are also one of the few universities on the list above that can boast of a M.A. program and a Ph.D. program. Conservative ethos. The chapel life could be stronger, but the Cistercian Abbey is literally across the street. Please feel free to email me offline if you are you or your child is considering the University of Dallas. It's a great place.
