Catholic College Search Just Got Easier With “Recruit Me” Program


Marge Fenelon - published on 11/04/14

Both the guide and magazine are available at at no cost, as a service to Catholic families. Print copies can also be purchased.

Although The Cardinal Newman Society has published "The Newman Guide" since 2007, Recruit Me is new this year. Not only is it helpful to Catholic families, but faithful Catholic colleges are thrilled with the opportunity to introduce their programs to many more prospective students.

The program “has put Franciscan University in touch with hundreds of students who know what faithful Catholic education is all about,” said Margaret Weber, admissions director at the Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio.

And Owen Sweeney, admissions director at Wyoming Catholic College, also said that the College has received “hundreds of messages from students who want a faithful Catholic college experience,” thanks to the Recruit Me program.

The program is especially valuable to a college like Wyoming Catholic, the nation’s newest Catholic college founded in 2005, or Nashville’s Aquinas College, which is expanding its on-campus housing options to welcome more students from around the country.

“Recruit Me has demonstrated that there are many students out there interested in the kind of faithful, top-notch education that Aquinas College has to offer,” said admissions director Connie Hansom. “We look forward to getting in touch with even more students in the weeks ahead.”

Currently, Recruit Me is funded by Cardinal Newman Society members, who see it as their mission to promote and defend Catholic education at all levels, beginning in kindergarten and through higher education. With Recruit Me’s initial success, it’s hoped that a sponsor will be found in order to meet the increasing interest in the program.
