Overall Christendom is a good college. Everyone is strongly encouraged to grow in the Catholic faith. However there are a few negative aspects about the college. In my opinion, the college favors boys. During 1 wk of class, I had three different professors from 3 different classes make some negative remarks about women (It is considered normal for a man to be a leader in a group, but it is bad and "against harmony" for a woman to be a leader esp. of men. Also that it is believed that women don't have the same capacity to learn as men do.) I am sorry (not), but we should not form opinions on subjects according to the beliefs and ideas of PAGAN men who viewed women as being beneath them. From my standpoint, literature is not considered GREAT LITERATURE if men or women are viewed beneath their dignity by the opposite sex. In my opinion both men and women, especially in the college years, have to be supported and reminded that they can do anything they put their minds to. They are only reminded by reading books that equalize men and women.

Also Cdom doesn't offer workable majors ( Who in their right mind would get a Phil. major [all the while getting into debt], only to go to a different school after Cdom in order to become (for example) a doctor.) I am not against learning the Classics but are they worth going into debt over? If someone really wants to learn about the opinions of Plato and the like, he or she should take up studying the classics as a hobby (All you need is a book written several hundred yrs. ago and some Sparknotes, and you are ready to go). Learning about Hector and Plato will not get someone a job in the business world (or it will dampen their chances of getting one b/c they will be competing against people who have a business degree). For this reason I am considering transfering from Cdom.

The points I mentioned are the only negative aspects about Cdom; other than those observations, I think that Christendom is a good college.

questionBut if you didn't like the majors, why did you go there to begin with? Were the majors hidden from you when you applied?
