The College of Saint Mary Magdalen in Warner, N.H., will provide free room and board to any freshman or transfer student who enrolls in the fall of 2014, according to the College’s website.
This initiative is “designed to make a faithful Catholic education more affordable to prospective students.” The College reports:
"Now more than ever, young people need a faithful and vibrant Catholic education for the good of the Church and the renewal of our nation," said president, Dr. George Harne about the new initiative.
Over the past 25 years the cost of tuition in the United States has sky-rocketed and through the Free Room and Board Initiative the College of Saint Mary Magdalen hopes to make a true liberal arts education accessible to students who may not have been otherwise able to afford it.
The reduction in cost represents an $8,000 discount for the fall 2013-2014 academic year worth more than $25,000 over four years. The College has a rolling admission process and will be actively accepting students throughout the summer.
The College of Saint Mary Magdalen is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
