How I Stayed Catholic at Harvard: 40 Tips for Faithful College Students (Paperback)
A Harvard graduate, Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University, and devout Catholic tells you everything you need to know about keeping your faith at a modern university. Drawing on her recent experience, Aurora Griffin shares forty practical tips relating to academics, community, prayer, and service that helped her stay Catholic in college.
She reminds us that keeping the faith is a conscious decision, reinforced by commitment to daily practices. Aurora's story illustrates that when you decide your faith matters to you, no one can take it away, even in the most secular environmnets and under strong peer pressure. Throughout the book, she shows how being a Catholic in college did not prevent her from having a full "college experience," but actually enabled her to make the most of her time at Harvard.
She encourages students who are about to begin this formative journey, or those now in college, that the most valuable parts of college life--lasting friendships, intellectual growth, and cherished memories--are experienced in a more meaningful way when lived in and through the Catholic faith.
Aurora Catherine Griffin attended Harvard University, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa with a degree in Classics in 2014. There she served as President of the Catholic Student Association. She was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship to study at Oxford University, where she received a graduate degree in Theology.
