The “Cardinal Newman Society” has published its 2nd edition of “The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College”. The publication is available on-line at thenewmanguide.com/ or a hard copy can be ordered.
Interesting reading. Many famous Catholic Universities (e.g., Notre Dame) did not make their list.
From a Newman Society press release: "This comprehensive Guide recommends 21 colleges and universities in the United States plus eight international, online and unique programs based on the strength of their Catholic identity. . . . . We are doing this so that as many Catholic families as possible are able to learn about the quality academics and faithful campus life available at the recommended colleges,”
