                                                      h     aving passion for anything that is important to you — ideas, culture, music,
                                                            art, sport, or the well-being of others — can inspire others to reach levels of
                                                      success that even they could not have imagined.

                                                      Caldwell College has passionate people that inspire others to be passionate, creative,
                                                      successful individuals.

                            Steve Maret was recently profiled in The Star Ledger for his work building homes for the poor
                            in Mexico during the last four years. “One of the things that has been important to me as a
                            father is making sure my kids understand how lucky they are. We have so much; we have
                            to give back.”

                            Steve brings this same passion to the classroom and it shows in his students’ comments, “He
                            talks to you, tells jokes and makes it fun and interesting.
                            He’s the best teacher I’ve ever had.”

                                                                                  Dr. Stephen Maret,
                                                                                Professor, Psychology
                                     SISTER KATHLEEN TUITE, O.P.
                                     Assistant to the President for Mission and Ministry

                                     Sister Kathleen has come to discover that the students of Caldwell College thirst to
                                     live out the mission Jesus proclaimed,” Love thy neighbor as yourself.” These words
                                     are put into action each time our students assist the most vulnerable in our society. The
                                     selfless generosity of our students, some who wake up at 5:30 a.m. to serve breakfast
                                     at 6:15 a.m. is always inspiring and humbling.

                                     Caldwell’s Alternative Spring Break experience to the Appalachian foothills of
                                     Kentucky truly reflects the thoughtfulness of our students. “I have found with this trip
                                     that our students attend with open hearts and minds setting the stage for the
                                     opportunity to be transformed by those they serve. They come back to Caldwell
                                     College truly changed by the love of their neighbor. Here lies my enthusiasm, the
                                     difference Caldwell College makes through the service of its students.”

                                     Rob’s arrangement of “Windmills of Your Mind” can be heard in the hit movie The
                                     Thomas Crown Affair, featuring Rob as a soloist with Chico O’Farrill’s Afro-Cuban
                                     Jazz Big Band.

                                     In 1999, Rob was awarded the prestigious BMI Foundation Jerry Harrington Jazz
                                     Composers Award.

                                     Class of ’98, Author/Illustrator of Children’s Books

                                     Lisa is passionate about writing, and her experiences at Caldwell College helped
                                     cultivate and develop that feeling. Her latest book, Star and the Milky Way Café,
                                     was published by Authorhouse and her next book is expected to be released in
                                     September of 2007.

                                     “I love to write. My books teach children life lessons and facts about travel and
                                     history. It was the social studies program at Caldwell College that gave me the

                                       PRIDE, PASSION AND WINNING

                                       Mark Corino, Executive Director of Athletics and head Men’s Basketball Coach, is a
                                       member of an elite group of only six New Jersey men's college basketball coaches
                                       who have won 400 games.

                                       The milestone tops the list of Coach Corino’s impressive accomplishments: Five trips to
                                       the NAIA national tournament; seven CACC regular-season championships; five CACC
                                       Tournament titles, a District 31 crown and a berth in the 2007 NCAA Division II men’s
                                       basketball tournament. “I’ve been fortunate to have been able to coach a number of
                                       outstanding student-athletes over the years, and certainly they deserve a lot of credit.”

              “Four hundred is a nice number, but it’s the people
              you’re involved with and the ability to touch people’s
              lives as they come through the program that are the
              important things,” Corino said. “I appreciate the
              players, coaches and the administration more than
              anything. They put us in position to win, and the
              400 wins is a testament to them.”

                                                                           Mark Corino,

                                                      t    he faculty and staff at Caldwell College inspire our students to reach their
                                                           personal best. Caldwell students and graduates have been recognized in
                                                      numerous ways.

                                                      Inspiring students is deeper than providing guidance with academic projects or
                                                      helping students attain their dream job. Inspiring students includes providing lessons
                                                      in values, as we were reminded by a recent letter from a former student returning from
                                                      his military service in Iraq.

                            “I find myself side by side with some of the bravest people I have ever met. These men have been
                            trained by the military to live by a code. The military teaches duty, honor, selfless service,
                            integrity, loyalty and respect…Because of you (at Caldwell) I too have learned these tools…
                            and I know you are still teaching these values.”

                            “I have learned that it is how you deal with [tough]
                            situations, and more importantly, how you deal with the
                            aftermath that defines you as a person. All those times
                            hearing you say ‘Do the right thing’…apply in these
                            situations. I thought I knew what it meant then, but I
                            know that I know now. And for that, I thank you.”

                                                                               Deacon Gregory Quinn,
                                                                                      Campus Ministry

                                                What could be more inspiring than studying history while in Italy or studying art while

                                                earning credits that transfer back and are applied toward your Caldwell degree.

                                                If an entire semester seems too long, we also provide unique short-term travel
                                                experience options. During winter or summer sessions your travel lasts from one to
                                                three weeks and you earn 3 credits for your experience.

                                                    w         hat makes a liberal arts education stand out against other types of
                                                              education? It provides you with general knowledge and intellectual skills,
                                                    rather than more specialized occupational, scientific or artistic skills.

                                                    It provides you with a perspective and an informed acquaintance with the major
                                                    branches of learning: the humanities; the physical and biological sciences and
                                                    mathematics; and the social sciences.

                                                    We have designed our liberal arts core curriculum so that you will develop your
                                                    critical thinking skills; learn and appreciate diverse cultures; and increase your moral
                                                    and civic awareness. The knowledge, intellectual skills, sensitivities, and creativity you
                                                    will learn transcend any major you study and any profession you enter. They are skills
                                                    that will never become obsolete.

                                                    In addition to this strong foundation in the liberal arts, we offer you many opportunities
                                                    to study in fields of your choosing. Take a moment to review our availability of majors
                                                    and special programs.

                           “Education should be the process of helping everyone to discover his
                           uniqueness, to teach him how to develop that uniqueness, and then
                           to show him how to share it because that’s the only reason for
                           having anything.”

                                                  the Dominican Order, a worldwide community of preachers, scholars and educators
                                                  which traces its origins to the thirteenth century. This Order had its beginnings in an

                                                  moral and intellectual sphere. Dedicated to the pursuit of truth, the Order has found
                                                  itself since its inception at the heart of higher education and its climate of study and
                                                  prayer has produced such scholars as Thomas Aquinas, social reformers like

                         This inherited integration of the arts, humanities and sciences, with the deepest expression of
                         the contemplative and creative spirit of men and women forms the basis of the educational
