Walsh Recommended in the 2019-20 Edition of The Newman Guide

For the seventh consecutive year, Walsh University has earned national recognition as one of the nation’s top Catholic universities with inclusion in the 2019-20 edition of The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College. Walsh University is one of only two colleges included from Ohio in the annual publication. The Newman Guide is the flagship project of The Cardinal Newman Society that this year recommends 26 Catholic colleges, universities and higher education programs for excellence in faithful Catholic education.

A hard copy edition of The Newman Guide is not currently available, but high school students can learn more about Newman Guide colleges by signing up for the Recruit Me program. Recruit Me allows students to be recruited by Newman Guide colleges, find tips on navigating the college search, and compete in the Newman Society’s $5,000 Essay Scholarship Contest.

The expanded Newman Guide content online goes beyond highlighting important differences among faithful colleges. 

Colleges are not members of The Cardinal Newman Society; there are no member fees, and the Newman Society does not represent any college. The colleges recommended in The Newman Guide are selected entirely at the discretion of the Newman Society following careful review of each college’s activities and policies. The Cardinal Newman Society recommends and promotes certain colleges as models of strong Catholic identity, primarily to assist Catholic families who are navigating the college search, but also to highlight exemplary models of strong Catholic identity.
