Young America's Foundation Ranks Christendom College as Top Conservative CollegeMarch 12, 2010
Christendom College has once again appeared at the top of the Young America’s Foundation’s (YAF) annual listing of its Top Conservative Colleges.
YAF’s Top Conservative Colleges is an exclusive list which features 14 institutions that proclaim, through their mission and programs, a dedication to discovering, maintaining, and strengthening the conservative values of their students. The list aims to provide high school students with a ranking system based “on the overall experience that colleges offer,” the YAF states on its website.
“Students who are interested in going to a college which does not bow down to today’s political correctness should certainly pay special attention to this list,” says Christendom’s Admissions Director Tom McFadden. “Christendom is certainly a conservative college and we appreciate the fact that the Young America’s Foundation has done its homework and seen the merit in what we offer our students. We are glad to be a part of the list.”
“The original vision of Christendom lives today through the institution’s devotion to Catholic theology and way of life. The core curriculum reinforces a Catholic worldview and teaches students to ‘distinguish truth from error or distortion, and then to communicate truth accurately, effectively, and convincingly to others,’” the report states.
According to the YAF, Christendom is among those schools, which offers “an alternative to the liberal status quo, because they allow and encourage conservative students to explore conservative ideas and authors. They offer coursework and scholarship in conservative thought and emphasize principles including smaller government, strong national defense, free enterprise, and traditional values. Furthermore, they avoid trends in academe by continuing to study Western Civilization instead of straying toward the study of Marxism, feminism, sexuality, postmodernism, and other distractions that do not give students a complete understanding of our country, our culture, and its founding principles.”
Other schools to make the Top Conservative College list include Hillsdale College in Michigan, Liberty University in Virginia, and Grove City College in Pennsylvania.
