St. Mary Magdalen, Thomas More College recommended in national Catholic guide

WARNER — The College of Saint Mary Magdalen is recommended by The Cardinal Newman Society in the latest edition of "The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College," which was published Oct. 7.

The Newman Guide and its updated companion magazine" My Future, My Faith' make searching for and getting advice on faithful Catholic colleges and universities easy. Both publications are available for free online and to order at

The guide said of Magdalen, "The College of Saint Mary Magdalen offers an education of the whole person—both in and beyond the classroom. With joy, the college proudly proclaims its fidelity to the (Catholic) Church, its commitment to intellectual excellence, and its determination to prepare Catholic leaders who will fearlessly renew the culture for Christ."
Published since 2007, The Newman Guide recommends 28 colleges, universities and online programs for strength of Catholic identity and academic excellence, with an emphasis on undergraduate education.

Primary sections include in-depth information on academics, spiritual life, residence life and student activities.
Twenty-two of the recommended colleges are in the United States, while four are English-language instruction programs in other countries, and two programs are online. website offers all of the content contained in "The Newman Guide" and "My Future, My Faith" and more than 400 pages of additional material about the recommended colleges.
New for the 2014 edition is a news feed of recent stories about each college and updates to each recommended college's photos, videos and social media links.

In addition, and at the request of countless Catholic families, the Newman Society asked nearly 100 questions of each college on everything from Mass and confession times to what majors are offered, and from visiting hours in the dorms to a list of campus clubs and activities, and everything in between. Updated answers from the colleges are now available.
Also included in the 28 recommended institutions in The Newman Guide is the The Thomas More College of Liberal Arts in Merrimack.
