Good place to move to after high school?

I am a senior guy going to a local high school in the state of Tennessee. I come from a devout Baptist family who not only taught me how to love God but accidentally raised me into being stubborn Catholic :smiley: who hopes to start rcia as soon as possible. Anyways, i’m looking for a good place to move to for college, to meet other Catholics, and hopefully meet a Catholic woman to eventually start a family with. I would like to move out of Tennessee but i don’t really want to move to the other side of the country. I would like to find someplace in the southeast that has a big population of catholics because its closer to home but not too close to home.

I am really interested in Virginia if you know any good places there but i am open to other suggestions too even if they are not in the southeast :slight_smile:


Here are some: Christendom College, 134 Christendom Drive, Front Royal, Virginia 22630.

Franciscan University of Steubenville, 1235 University Boulevard Steubenville, OH 43952

Ave Maria University, 5050 Avenue Maria Boulevard Ave Maria, FL 34142

These three are truly Catholic in their allegiance to the teachings of the Catholic Church.

You are in our prayers. Welcome home!

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
