STEUBENVILLE, OH — Franciscan University of Steubenville has been included in the "Top Ten Conservative Colleges" released by Young America’s Foundation (YAF), an organization that is committed to ensuring that young Americans understand and are inspired by the ideas of individual freedom and traditional values.
The YAF Top Ten list, released annually, specifies institutions that proclaim, through their mission and programs, a dedication to discovering, maintaining, and strengthening the conservative values of their students.
YAF noted, "Franciscan University is a dynamic university that lives by a conservative intellectual and social philosophy based on the strong liberal arts tradition and the teachings of the Catholic Church."
YAF also mentioned Franciscan’s programs that are devoted to obtaining a deeper knowledge of Western Civilization, and noted the unique household system.
