Texas: student fundraising effort saves small Catholic college

Catholic World News - January 17, 2014

A student online fundraising effort raised $300,000 for the College of Saints John Fisher & Thomas More, ensuring its continued existence for another semester, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

“Fisher More differs from many of its sister schools in its unique approach to learning, which greatly emphasizes the Catholic identity and provides a residential experience ‘where students are encouraged to immerse themselves in Catholic liturgy and prayer,’” the newspaper’s editorial board added as it praised the students’ efforts.

Founded in 1981, the college, which has 40 students, places “emphasis on traditional Catholicism and the Extraordinary Form of the Mass” and has a “strong curriculum with heavy emphasis on philosophy and theology,” according to the Cardinal Newman Society.
