Make Lifelong Friends
Students and faculty pursue intellectual rigor communally. Inside and outside the classroom, the school aims to serve as a hospitable and supportive environment for all students involved in studying theology and religious studies. Our students are a particularly vibrant intellectual and social community.
Inside the classroom
Our small class sizes and the nature of our subject matter encourage a personal environment where professors act as guides and fellow seekers with their students in their quest for wisdom.
Outside the classroom
Our students enjoy community in school liturgies, social events, and lectures. Among majors there is a particularly strong sense of identity and esprit de corps.
From St. Augustine
"If you, therefore, are Christ's body and members, it is your own mystery that is placed on the Lord's table! It is your own mystery that you are receiving!... Be a member of Christ's body, then, so that your 'Amen' may ring true!... What is this one bread? Is it not the 'one body,' formed from many? Remember: bread doesn't come from a single grain, but from many. … Be what you see; receive what you are…"
– St. Augustine
