Our Open House events give prospective students and their families the perfect means to do just that, all in the span of one day on our campus,” says director of admissions Sam Phillips.

When prospective students and their families arrive at Christendom, they will begin their day with an opening address from college president Dr. Timothy O’Donnell, followed by presentations on the importance of a liberal arts education and on the great success alumni find after graduation.

After the initial talks, visiting students will be able to sit in on classes with Christendom’s esteemed faculty and student body, experiencing first-hand the dynamic atmosphere that exists in every class at Christendom. While students are in class, parents will be able to learn more about the college’s robust financial aid offerings, along with the importance of choosing a Catholic college in today’s era.
