    Does anyone have any good, strong academic, Christian liberal arts colleges (not seminaries) that they would recommend and if so, why would they recommend them?

    Thanks.

    Cedarville University in Ohio comes to mind. My best friend at church has a daughter who just graduated from there. He was very impressed (and, knowing him as I do, that's saying a whole lot!) with what they offered her.

    Cedarville has continually striven to be a learning community that is intentional about academic excellence, biblical integration, and cultural engagement. www.cedarville.edu / 1-800-CEDARVILLE

    Cedarville was who i was going to mention. The people I know who have gone there have received a top notch Christian liberal arts education.

    I recommend any Jesuit College/university for anyone who wants a strong liberal arts college. My #3 son and his girlfriend graduated from Seattle U. and got a good education.

    My #1 Grandkid starts at St Martin"s (Benedictine) University this fall.

    I understand that Jesuit colleges are very good -- both academically and socially. I have friends who have a student at Boston College and others who have a daughter at Marquette. Both are very pleased.

    However, to be more clear, I was specifically looking for Protestant Christian colleges.
