Regarding Christendom, this was posted several years ago at another forum by an alum:

Quote
The only college I know of that revolves around the TLM exclusively is Fisher-More College in Fort Worth, TX. I am entirely unable to speak on their academic or intellectual caliber, but their devotion to the traditional sacraments is an integral component to the college's identity.

Which has since been shut down!
So the number of options for traditional colleges "in union with Rome" appears to be zero.

There is St. Mary's College in St. Mary's Kansas.

I know a very smart and very talented young lady who went there. Some people thought she was wasting her talent going to an unaccredited school, but she met a nice young traditional Catholic man and is now happily married.

I was reading about one that they are hoping to open in Northern IL, St Athanasius maybe?
And yes, St Marys is on our list too, forgot to list that one.  We know many very nice young families who's mom or dad or both went there prior to Marriage.

I'm sure it's been said elsewhere TRM, but I want to add that it sounds like you're doing an incredible job raising your children.

Only by the grace of God....

I haven't seen anything about this.
Let us know if you have further information.

I attended St. Mary's College and my opinion is mixed, but I would advise against going there. It might be difficult to get admitted there these days anyway...

There was a poster here who anecdoted about his attending St. Mary's and then seamlessly transferring to KSU to earn a pretty good degree in Economics or Engineering or something. I can't remember his nom de plume. "Commieskullcrusher" or something like that.

Oh, so this is a spin-off from the Rockford IL Oratory of the ICR.

I know they've had a K-12 school in Rockford for many years.

Looks like they're trying to reach out to all types, since they're going to be advertising in the National Catholic Register, but they are promoting their letter of recommendation from Bishop Tissier de Mallerais.

Noble intentions, and I wish them the best, but this has been tried before, and I'd give the odds of success at 10-1 or less.

Yeah, I think there's some sort of arrangement between KSU and St. Mary's. I don't know the story behind it, but I do know that KSU accepts St. Mary's credits as transfer classes despite St. Mary's not being accredited (I don't know whether it accepts all of them though). I believe that many students who graduated from St. Mary's end up going to KSU.

Strangely enough, the university I currently attend (located in Delaware) accepted a few of my St. Mary's credits.

Franciscan University of Steubenville. I work in a secular environment and have run into several of their graduates. All wholesome, orthodox in belief, well-rounded, and successful financially and socially. Very active in their communities, locally and nationally. The college offers a large variety of degrees, including science and engineering. Strong nursing program. Sure, it is more "charismatic", but I'm sure there are traditionalist groups and Pittsburgh is nearby. I'm partial to larger colleges. Less insular, you get to meet more people, wider breadth of activities and things to learn, etc.

Are you aware of the current president undermining FUS' Catholic identity and the shenanigans in the English department?  If yes, why do you think FUS' good points outweigh the dangers?

I was not, actually. I looked it up just now, and that IS troubling.

I have heard that Chistendom is very very bad news.
Not to mention we are in the "into doom" phase of Christendom it sounds like the college is following right along with the macro moves we are seeing.
The next and final epoch to Christendom will be Christ the King.
The downside of Christ the King phase is we have to go through "the king" phase.
As you can imagine that will be when Hell personifies as the Antichrist and comes as a false King.
Good Luck!
Luckily we wont see "the king" phase but are living the "into doom" and will need to lay groundwork for "Christ is King" resurgence and revival.

Bleh.  Yet again I am reminded but there is no where safe but Heaven.

No bottom floor to hell, it just keeps getting worse and worse.

I spent 4 years at a small private University and 4 years at a large public University. I much preferred the large public University. At smaller schools it is much easier for the administrators to force their agendas down the students' throats and compel students to partake in horrific activities. They enforce uniformity (in evil). They can and do make assemblies and events mandatory. The propaganda (abortion pamphlets throughout the dorms, gay tolerance assemblies, atheist trifolds on the dining hall tables mocking Jesus Christ during lent, etc) was overwhelming.

At larger schools it is much easier to remain an individual and be your own person.There are competing agendas and you're more or less left alone. The worst thing I saw was a sticker on a bike rack that said "a trans person was here." There are enough people at big schools that you don't have to be friends with the ones you don't like. But I also lived off campus at the public University, which probably made a significant difference in my experience.

Lambda, that is quite telling. Most small, liberal arts colleges steer towards the conservative side. Was it Oberlein in Ohio you attended?
