Here are some thoughts: Many

Here are some thoughts: Many Jesuits, because the order is academically active, can be more forward thinking than other catholic orders. Not all students are religious. Academic standards at catholic colleges are typically high. wheeling is ranked well. You don't have to agree with them. You probably will have to take some theology courses. Tuition is high. Class size at wheeling is typically small. If you're single and straight, there are more females than males.

Hmm... not sure if I would go

Hmm... not sure if I would go to a specifically Christian university, but I suppose it depends what you're into, and if there are specific professors there that you feel will advance your studies and career.

I went to Catholic elementary schools, and had many friends of other faiths there.
