Senior Finds Direction Through Studying the Arts

Choosing between studying the time-tested liberal arts or following her passion for theater was something that Christendom College senior Madeleine Trull did not want to have to do.

Alumnus Key to Landing Internships in Congress

Capitol Hill is a fascinating place to be in our times. With so many changes occurring, almost daily, it is proving to be an exciting place to work, enticing many college students to try and get into the political arena, particularly as interns.

After several years as the organizer of the GOP Job and…

Twins Value Sibling Discount and Educational Experience

Going to college with a brother or sister is a unique experience. On one hand, there’s a feeling of comfort and familiarity that can help with the transition to the rigors of college life. On the other, there’s the spirit of competitiveness that exists between siblings, as each tries to do better than the other. For twins and Christendom College juniors Tom and Beth Anderson, both aspects have contributed positively to their time at the college, making the experience that…

Junior Discovers Rugby

Junior Dominic Mann was always athletically inclined, but didn’t have much opportunity to play organized sports growing up, so he often satisfied his athletic interests by playing Frisbee, basketball, and football with friends.  While in high school, he was a serious student, graduating Seton Home Study High School with a 4.0 grade point average and with an eye on attending Christendom after graduation.  But while visiting his older brother, Jordan, at Christendom, he encountered the sport of rugby.
