Students Give Blood, Save Lives in Annual Drive

Donating blood is one of the most generous acts a person can make during their lifetime, literally giving of their very selves to save others. This blood could help a mother, a father, a son, a person battling cancer, or even a baby — or, more likely, all of the above. The Christendom community joined in this fight to save lives at the college’s annual blood drive this past week, saving potentially 96 lives in the process. The college has…

Liberal Arts and Law: A Perfect Pairing

Law is one of the oldest professions known to man. We read about the study and application of law in the works of Socrates, Herodotus, and other minds of ancient civilization, and see its evolution, and consistency, stretching through the centuries to the courtrooms of today. Perhaps the need for Catholics in this ancient field is stronger than ever before, with Supreme Court cases, such as Roe v. Wade, changing the law of the land for the worse. Thankfully for…

Student Defends Mary as Mediatrix of All Graces in Public Lecture

During their four years at Christendom, students wrestle with some of the deepest questions and mysteries known to man: who is God, what is man, and what is man’s place in the Divine Plan, just to name a few. Senior Jack Lake is delving into one such theological question this semester for his senior thesis, examining the topic of Mary as the Mediatrix of all graces. While he could have simply researched and written his argument on the subject, Lake…

Refreshments will be provided, and all are invited…

Alumnus Praises Carroll’s Work as “Model for the Catholic Study of History”

Education is one of the most noble, and challenging, fields to enter. It takes hard work, commitment, and a desire to help improve the lives of others. Dr. Warren Carroll, the founder of Christendom College, was filled with those traits in the 1970s when he founded the college, inspiring later alumni to follow his example and join the education field. For alumnus and Bishop O’Connell High School religion department head Matthew Rose, Carroll’s work directly influenced his decision to major…

College Offers $100 or $500 for Visiting

The college admissions office’s new initiative for first-time visiting high school seniors is getting a lot of people excited about visiting campus this year. Students can visit any time before March 31, 2018, either through a day or overnight visit, or during an Open House, to take advantage of receiving their choice of a $100 check or a $500 scholarship to attend Christendom. The new initiative, which comes on the heels of other expansions to the college’s financial aid offerings,…

Christendom’s Got Talent

“Christendom’s got talent” is a popular phrase for many at the college. Not just a play on the title of a famous television show, the phrase is an honest appraisal of the amount of musical, theatrical, and comedic talent that is displayed at Christendom each year. From concerts to plays, musicals to talent nights, Christendom is a place where art doesn’t just appear occasionally — it thrives. This was clearly evident at the college’s recently held Senior Benefit Concert, one…
