College Students Learn to Battle Catholic Identity Abuses on Campus
College Students Learn to Battle Catholic Identity Abuses on Campus
4/29/2016 || Catholic college students who attended this month’s “Standing Up for Faith & Freedom” seminar in Virginia told The Cardinal Newman Society that not only do they want to see an end to Catholic identity abuses on campuses, but they want to be part of the solution in rebuilding faithful Catholic education.

“Yes, we are fighting an uphill battle,” said Joseph Shaneyfelt, a senior at the Newman Guide-recommended Benedictine College in Atchison, Kan. “In a time when political correctness and fear of ‘offending’ people is running rampant on college campuses across the United States, we need to be first and foremost adamant in saying we are Catholic.”

Shaneyfelt and dozens of fellow Catholic college and high school students recently took part in the two-day seminar organized by Young America's Foundation (YAF). The seminar was intended to train students on how to defend their principles on Catholic campuses, especially those that misuse and misrepresent their Catholic identity.
