Life Skills Workshops Prepare Students for the Future

From the moment students step foot on Christendom’s campus, they are beginning a journey toward discovering their vocation and achieving success in it. One of the ways that the college helps prepare students for this success is through offering the Life Skills Workshop series, giving students the chance to get a leg up on their peers by learning time management, professionalism, note-taking, and more. Some of the workshops have been offered in years past, but this year, all four of…

Christendom Senior Releases New Music Record

Reading senior Michael Duca’s artist biography reveals a few very important things about him. One, he is very passionate about music. Two, he elected to earn an undergraduate degree in philosophy rather than jump full-time into a burgeoning music career in Los Angeles. That decision is one that continues to form Duca, with his time in the classroom and on campus directly contributing to the release of his newest EP, Eat Local. Duca’s newest EP dropped on Spotify this past weekend,…

Academic Events Take Education Outside the Classroom

The Christendom educational experience has never been confined to just the classroom. From the very beginning, the size of the school and the generosity of the professors meant that conversations between students and faculty sprung up throughout a typical day, whether that be over lunch or walking to Mass. That spirit of “always learning” was taken a step further a few years ago, with the creation of “Thomistic Tuesdays” and “Quodlibets” — academic events that challenge students to be better…
