On April 26th, Bishop McNamara juniors and sophomores had the opportunity to attend the Jesuit Excellence Fair - a college fair hosted by Jesuit Excellence Tours (JET) DC which took place in the BMHS Fine Arts Gym. Our students were able to learn more about the diverse Jesuit colleges and universities that our nation has to offer. Prospective applicants considering pursuing their undergraduate degrees at a Jesuit institution are encouraged to spend time speaking with members of the admissions staff at various Jesuit colleges from across the county.
The 28 Jesuit colleges and universities that comprise the Association of Jesuit Colleges & Universities (AJCU) are located in 17 states, the District of Columbia, and Belize. The institutions range from major research universities to comprehensive universities; from smaller colleges and universities that combine the liberal arts and professional studies to one strictly liberal arts college. The institutions that are in the AJCU are part of the International Association of Jesuit Universities (IAJU): a network of regional associations representing Jesuit institutions of higher learning throughout the world.
