School’s Comments:

Institution: As the only Catholic liberal arts college in Australia, Campion goes to the core of education, faith and human flourishing.

Located in western Sydney, Campion offers a uniquely integrated and fully accredited B.A. in the liberal arts. Small class sizes (tutorials are capped at 15 students) allow for a genuine community of learning in which students get to know faculty personally. Through studying literature, history, theology, philosophy, science and math, Campion students are taught to think critically, problem-solve and communicate effectively. As Albert Einstein said, “The value of an education at a liberal arts college is not the learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think.”

Where many view university education as mere job training, Campion focuses on students’ entire formation: spiritual, intellectual, social and vocational. Campion is grounded in the Catholic faith and exercises faithfulness to the teachings of the Church, but it helps all students to live out their faith in all areas of life.

Dorms: Campion’s accommodations are segregated, male and female, across all dorms and residences. Individuals are not permitted to enter rooms of the opposite sex, and access to the living spaces is limited. Senior students are designated as residential assistants, and one is allocated to each area. There is a senior residential assistant who lives on campus.
