Student Life

While the defining purpose of all education is the pursuit and communication of truth, those who study and teach are human beings created in the image of God, who has destined them not only for knowledge and wisdom, but for virtue, love--of God and neighbor--service, and ultimately for eternal life with the Holy Trinity in the communion of Saints. Because Campion College is a Catholic institution grounded in the Church's rich tradition of Christian humanism, the personal, moral, spiritual, and social development of its students--and faculty--are an integral part of its mission.

 

Residence:

Residential life is a key part of the overall education at Campion. It provides a rare and wonderful opportunity to develop life-long friendships, and to enjoy company and surroundings that support and encourage students in their faith and their vocation as students.

Students are expected to live either at home with parents or close relatives, or in one of the neighborhood apartments made available to students by Campion College. There will be adult supervision of the apartments through the Director of Student Life and Ministry. Men and women students will live in separate residences. Students may choose to prepare their own meals or eat at one of the nearby inexpensive restaurants, many of which are a short walk from Campion.

 

Mercy Works:

Student initiatives in the area of works of mercy are very welcome. See the Director of Student Life and Ministry for information about what may already be available, or for support in starting something new.

 

Campus:

Campion College is in an urban residential neighborhood within blocks of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, various religious houses and study centers, the Catholic University of America (with many free events and activities open to the public), and the entire range of opportunities available in Washington, D.C., the capital of the free world. Campion College's administrative offices are collocated with those of The Faith & Reason Institute, a distinguished, independent research center, at 1513 Sixteenth Street N.W. There are classrooms, a library, offices for students to meet with faculty and administrators, and rooms available for student lodging in or near the neighborhood. In effect, the neighborhood and the city of Washington, D.C. is our campus.

Students will find at Campion College a neighborhood community of faculty, administration, and students living, teaching, studying, praying, and working together.

 

Sports:

There are no organized sports at Campion College. There are miles of beautiful hiking and skiing trails within an hour's drive of Campion College. Shoreline facilities are also abundant and close by in Maryland.
