Newman Guide Aids Univ. of Dallas Family in College Search

A student who will attend the University of Dallas in Irving, Tex., next year learned about the University from her mother who read The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College.

Julia Shinkle, who currently lives in New Jersey and attends a private Catholic all-girls’ high school in Pennsylvania, reportedly “wasn't sure how she felt about this small school in another part of the country until she visited UD with her father in June 2013 and fell in love.”

Shinkle is excited about “Meeting people from all over the country… And the classes. Learning new things, being exposed to ideas I wouldn't ever have thought of otherwise. Also Rome. I'm very excited about Rome! And playing golf, of course...the Las Colinas golf course is amazing!” 

The University reports:

While UD still won't technically have a women's golf team, women's golf will be declared as a varsity sport to allow Shinkle to participate in various women's events such as the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Golf Championship. Shinkle will also compete on the men's team in individual events.

Shinkle plans to major in biology; she is interested in sports medicine as a career. She is excited about UD's Human Performance Lab, which contains state-of-the-art equipment for students and faculty to research and test techniques used in biomechanics, exercise science and performance training. 

University of Dallas is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
