    everyone has a personal id card that they have to swipe to get into any one of the buildings. all doors are locked to outsiders. it is a seminary, no crime!!!

    no greek life available

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    mass, morning prayer, evening prayer, spiritual fraternities every day. this is the most passionately catholic school i have ever been to.

    Bang for the buck

    this is the best school for theology/ philosophy. you get so much more here than what you normally do at a regular college

    What to do for fun

    pray, we have a pub in the basement of each of the dorms with a piano, ping pong table, big screen tv. chess, board games, sun-th 9-10 f-sat 9-11 beer is served along with food and soft drinks. there is a new cardio room with brand new equipment. a weight cage to lift weights. a huge, heated pool. a full sized basketball court. a bowling ally. all of these things, free of charge to the student.

    Food and Dining

    meals here are served 3 times a day. there are always free soda, juice, and bread/bagels available. the food is literally, a home cooked meal every day. we have professional chefs cooking for us every day, ranging from simple tacos for lunch, to roasted chicken or pot roast for supper. amazing variety. new thing every day!

    Dorm Life

    the best dorms in the college prospective. recently renovated. singles only. hardwood floors! lazyboy chair! new, beautiful beds! it is like staying in a 5 star hotel.

    Academic Rigor

    it is academically tough, and passionately catholic.

    Tips for prospective students

    pray about your possible vocation to the priesthood. our lord will lead you in the right direction. you will never know if you are being called to the priesthood or not unless you try.

    In three sentences

    the pontifical college josephinum is the best school to attend if you are single, male, and catholic and thinking about becoming a priest. the pcj is holy, renaissance, and pontifical. the faculty, architecture, and curriculum is the best i have ever seen!

    Campus Safety

    The campus is a private property and does not tolerate trespassing.

    Clubs and Activities

    They make all events and clubs very open to the community so that anyone can be active. They really encourage socializing.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The campus is Roman Catholic so there is daily mass and other activities done by Catholics.

    Bang for the buck

    Everything on the campus is Great! For the amount one is paying for per year it isn't bad at all. The whole experience has been very fruitful.

    What to do for fun

    One can go hiking in the back of the college camps, which we have a creek and lake. One can even go in the heart of Columbus which is about 10 minutes away.

    Food and Dining

    The food can be a little better and they could probably have some more options, but it's eatable. Not bad for what one is paying though.

    Dorm Life

    The rooms are a little reduced, but are brand new. They just rebuilt the entire dorms this fall of 2012.

    Academic Rigor

    All the professors are very friendly and willing to help in anyway possible. If one is having academic trouble they are willing to help in anyway to help you pass the course.

    Tips for prospective students

    It is a good place to study and it is very friendly. It might take some time to become adjusted to the schedule, but in the end it is very fruitful.

    In three sentences

    It is a great place to develop a teenager/ young adult's character. It helps keep one focused on their goals and has minimal distractions.
