You’ve decided to go to college, continue your education, and achieve what 70% of the U.S. population could only dream of, getting a degree. Attending a college is more than just going to classes, acquiring information and statistics, and earning a degree. Your experience at college will directly affect your opportunities when seeking a career. Attending a college that will help infuse the spiritual and moral principle in your chosen field of study is important. Here is a list of benefits to look for when making your decision on which Catholic college to attend:
Smaller class sizes offer more one-on-one time with professors and other students. They also offer a better environment for learning and understanding course material.
Student Organizations Offered
Participating in student organizations at Catholic colleges allows students to gain social and communication skills, while building lasting relationships. Make sure the college has an organization you would be interested in joining.
Does the college offer leadership opportunities? Colleges with a smaller community have the added benefit of making more leadership opportunities available.
An Atmosphere of Acceptance and Faith
Attending a Catholic college offers academic excellence with faith-based principles and morals as the foundation. Attending a Catholic college that actively supports your growth spiritually will instill faith-based values.
Participating in the local community actively demonstrates stewardship and has a real impact for those being helped. Check to see if the college is active in the community and has helping the community or community service as part of their mission.
