In New Hampshire Catholic Higher Education news...

The College of St. Mary Magdalen (formerly known as Magdalen College) has moved to join forces with the recently established Erasmus Institute of Liberal Arts, which was co-founded by Peter Sampo, who, many years ago founded Magdalen, then went on the found the other small Catholic liberal arts college (SCLAC, as my kids call them) in New Hampshire, The Thomas More College of the Liberal Arts. Among other things, this will give Magdalen a Rome Semester, three majors (philosophy, political science, and literature), and the Cowen program--a core sequence that involves all the students in the program in a common humanities sequence. That means freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors together studying common texts.

Here is the press release on the Magdalen web page.

Here is an article about the Erasmus Institute from the NCRegister.
