Religious Education?

Marvin Olasky has some suggested questions for a Christian considering attending a Christian college:

Does it implicitly teach that Christians should be separatists from society, appeasers of it, or transformers of it? (I recommend the latter.) Does the college fall into legalism concerning movies, music, etc.? Is spiritual life vibrant or rote? Are students engaged in classes that are small enough to demand thoughtful participation? Are professors narrowly specialized and intent on playing to other academics, or are they excited by the play of ideas and the practical applications that result? Does the college emphasize internships and other means of helping students recognize their calling?
