Hi, my name is Kelly Salomon, and I am the editor of The Newman Guide at The Cardinal Newman Society! Ten years ago, I was a high school student who used The Newman Guide to find my alma mater. I wanted to attend an authentic Catholic college where I could study the liberal arts and compete on a Division I tennis team. During college, I grew in my faith, prepared for my career, and met my husband. I’m so grateful for The Newman Guide and am eager to help YOU experience all that a faithful Catholic college can provide. Please don’t miss signing up for our Recruit Me program that allows faithful Catholic colleges to recruit you, and makes you eligible for our $5,000 Essay Scholarship Contest. Below, I will introduce you to many of our free resources! Feel free to email me with any questions at CollegeGuide@CardinalNewmanSociety.org. God bless you!
At faithful Catholic colleges, students receive strong support in the Faith. They prepare for their careers, and also for the rest of their lives. The reality is that Catholic colleges aren’t all the same. Below are some articles that help explain the value of a faithful Catholic college education.
The typical advice you will read in books and hear from well-meaning friends and advisors focuses on two priorities in the college search: Will the college help you get a good job? And will you have fun? But there’s much more to choosing a college!
I can’t recommend enough the articles listed below, which will help you consider who you are and what you need to be successful, and your goals for the future.
The importance of the first couple weeks of a college semester cannot be overstated. It’s a critical time for you to get involved with your faith and activities that will help surround you with good friends.
