Catholic College
Olya Bezvushko

Catholic colleges are known for their welcoming campuses, caring faculty, strong co-curricular offerings and high academic quality. Besides they have faith-based heritage of service. Catholic colleges stay for quality and affordability. In general, they charge tuition, reflecting their mission of access.

There are 217 catholic colleges in the USA, which are attended by more than 700,000 students.
If you are planning to go abroad, like the idea of studying in catholic college but are not catholic? Donít worry. Students of all faiths are welcomed there. In average, only 65% of students at catholic colleges and universities are catholic. The proportion varies from one campus to another. Students of all faiths are welcome.

There are such colleges in 40 states. They are located in large cities as well as in small towns. Also, they come in all sizes (from 1,000 students up to 23,000).

Catholic colleges have a connection to a global church and sponsoring religious Congregations with international connections. There are many catholic colleges which offer study-abroad opportunities for students.

Most Catholic colleges welcome international students and for American students provide opportunities for volunteer work in culturally diverse contexts. These universities consolidate international students, faculty and staff of widely varied backgrounds, racial/ethnic heritages, talents, and religious faiths. In fact, they attract a more diverse student body than many leading public universities and secular private institutions. On Catholic campuses you will be offered unparalleled opportunities to build lifelong friendships with peers of both similar and diverse worldviews - people who value knowledge, faith, community, and service.
