I recently spoke with a good friend who graduated from Marquette University. He wanted to share some personal reflections about his time as an undergraduate there. After all, Marquette is seen by many as the gold standard Catholic institution in Milwaukee, so does it measure up in terms of its fidelity to Church teaching? “John” is currently a doctor serving in the Navy. An extremely bright fellow, he offers some perceptive insights about the striking lack of a serious Catholic identity at the university.
I would love to send my kids to Marquette. They need a "Catholic Studies" program like St. Thomas. A ton of success there without having to change at an administration level. Let the Catholic ghettos grow!
