Celebrate Ronald Reagan's Birthday on February 6.. Ronald Reagan is considered one of America’s greatest presidents.. Sadly, college and high school faculty and administrators rarely share an optimistic or uplifting view of Ronald Reagan.. Furthermore, many assigned text books attack Ronald Reagan and his presidency.. One widely distributed text book, A History of the U.. S.. , describes Reagan’s presidency as "budget-busting, criminal-ridden, [and] trigger-happy.. " A leading national guide for teachers calls Reagan "a cheerleader for selfishness.. ".. President Reagan, in many of his speeches, often touched on the importance of individual freedom, limited government, and free markets and even warned against political correctness.. You can easily post fliers or distribute leaflets featuring quotes by President Reagan.. You may want to obtain one of the following books:.. In the Words of Ronald Reagan.. by his son, Michael, or.. The Quotable Ronald Reagan.. by Peter Hannaford.. In addition to posting flyers, your club may choose to:.. Host a table in the student union to distribute literature on President Reagan..

Reagan Reality fliers.. Your club can dedicate a week towards the end of March to highlight the most outrageous statements made by liberal leaders.. The Left never hesitates to remind the public when a conservative misspeaks.. Yet many outlandish remarks made by prominent liberals go unnoticed by the general public and the media.. You can use a bracket system similar to the NCAA Basketball Tournament to highlight sixteen of the most radical liberals and their extreme statements.. This activity will encourage participation from other students and, if marketed correctly, build anticipation as to who will be voted by students as the "maddest" liberal in the country.. Young America’s Foundation has already compiled a.. list.. of sixteen liberal leaders and their top "moment of madness.. ".. Begin by reserving a table in the student union or another high traffic area on campus for the entire week.. Announce your plans to the local and campus press and advertise that students can come by your location to begin voting..  ...   schedule speakers such as.. Christopher Horner.. , author of..

You can unite your campus community to properly remember the victims of the terrorist attacks by taking part in Young America's Foundation's.. Young America's Foundation will provide you with ideas and information on how to:..

Che Guevara was an international terrorist and mass murderer.. During his vicious campaigns to impose Communism on countries throughout Latin America, Che Guevara trained and motivated the Castro regime's firing squads that executed thousands of men, women, and children.. For decades, the Left tried to glorify murderers and thugs like Lenin, Mao, and even Stalin.. They are discredited today because people know about their evil deeds.. Che is more obscure.. He is one notorious figure who is idolized by the Left and hailed as a "hero," yet most students never learn the truth about his cult of violence.. Use the anniversary of Che's death on October 9 to educate the campus community about Che's atrocities.. Young America's Foundation can provide you with free copies of our "Victims of Che Guevara" poster and other.. downloadable fliers.. Who is Really Dividing Your Campus?.. The Left champions its version of "diversity" which is defined solely by racial categories.. The Left assumes that one's race determines one's worldview and life experiences.. Additionally, the Left is not interested in a diversity of ideas; it simply embraces and works to advance a liberal agenda.. Leftist students, professors, and administrators are often the first to intimidate, attack, and silence conservatives when they speak out.. What is diverse about a campus where people of different races or cultures all share the same point-of-view? A university monopolized by Leftist ideas is the antithesis of diversity.. Distribute these fliers to expose the Left's misconstrued version of diversity.. Embrace Conservatism PDF.. Left's Distortion of Diversity.. For the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, rally students on your campus to stand up to those who want to restrict freedom by giving more power to the federal government by tearing down a mock Berlin Wall on your campus.. The Obama administration, professors, and campus leftists endless preach government control to solve policy problems.. Your group can warn students about the endless misery, rationing, and despair that results from socialist policies and question why many leftist students and professors still advocate these concepts..

" The word "Christmas" is also absent in most official university literature..

  • Title: Young America's Foundation - Top Conservative College List
    Descriptive info: TOP CONSERVATIVE COLLEGES.. Young America’s Foundation is pleased to release the “Top Conservative College” list in response to the frequently asked question by parents and students of which schools we recommend to those seeking conservative colleges.. The Top Conservative College list includes.. Christendom College.. College of the Ozarks.. Colorado Christian University,.. Franciscan University.. Grove City College.. Harding University.. Hillsdale College.. The King's College.. Liberty University.. Patrick Henry College.. Regent University.. Saint Vincent College.. Thomas Aquinas College.. Thomas More College.. , and.. Wisconsin Lutheran College.. Introduction.. A wide variety of rankings exist for the market of American colleges and universities.. Each year,.. U.. News World Report.. releases its.. “America’s Best Colleges”.. edition.. The magazine grades each institution based on factors including peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, and student selectivity.. Yet,.. News.. does not rank the overall experience that colleges offer.. That is why Young America’s Foundation presents the following list of institutions that offer a conservative experience for students.. Young America’s Foundation deemed these institutions the best, and they are listed in alphabetical order.. Many conservative students seek alternatives in higher education, but they may not be fully aware of institutions that fit these criteria.. The “Top Conservative College” list features institutions that proclaim, through their mission and programs, a dedication to discovering, maintaining, and strengthening the conservative values of their students.. These colleges offer an alternative to the liberal status quo, because they allow and encourage conservative students to explore conservative ideas and authors.. They offer coursework and scholarship in conservative thought and emphasize principles including smaller government, strong national defense, free enterprise, and traditional values.. Furthermore, they avoid trends in academe by continuing to study Western Civilization instead of straying toward the study of Marxism, feminism, sexuality, postmodernism, and other distractions that do not give students a complete understanding of our country, our culture, and its founding principles.. Young America’s Foundation highly recommends service academies such as.. West Point.. Annapolis.. for people interested in serving their country and receiving a top-notch education.. However, these schools do not appear on our list.. They are not liberal arts colleges but rather military colleges that follow a training model for future officers.. There is nothing more honorable than serving our country, and we strongly encourage qualified students to consider this option.. This is not an exhaustive list of conservative institutions and should not be taken as such.. Nor should it be the only source consulted in a college search.. Young America’s Foundation recommends that this list serve as a starting point.. Parents and students should seek several information sources, read admissions materials thoroughly, consult with friends and counselors, and make visits.. Additionally, Young America’s Foundation is not a college rating organization; we decided to publish this list to help address a frequently asked question.. These colleges offer ROTC programs on campus or at neighboring schools: College of the Ozarks, Franciscan University, Grove City College, Liberty University, Patrick Henry College, Regent University, Saint Vincent College, and Wisconsin Lutheran College.. Please contact those schools directly for details.. If you would like to recommend other colleges for this list, please.. contact us.. For more information, please contact the listed colleges, or call Young America’s Foundation at 800-USA-1776.. Christendom College in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia is a Catholic college with more than 400 undergraduates.. Six majors and a master’s degree in theological studies are offered.. All undergraduate programs begin with a core curriculum that includes study of Catholic doctrine, as well as philosophy, mathematics, and science.. The college was founded in 1977 by a group of Catholics concerned with the direction of higher education, especially within the Catholic church.. “Only an education which integrates the truths of the Catholic faith throughout the curriculum is a fully Catholic education,” stated the founders.. Led by Dr.. Warren H.. Carroll, the visionaries also envisioned how, “the only rightful purpose of education is to know the truth and to live by it.. The purpose of Catholic education is therefore to learn and to live by the truth revealed by Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…”.. The original vision of Christendom lives today through the institution’s devotion to Catholic theology and way of life.. The core curriculum reinforces a Catholic worldview and teaches students to “distinguish truth from error or distortion, and then to communicate truth accurately, effectively, and convincingly to others.. ” Required courses include “Literature of Western Civilization,” “Introduction to Philosophy,” and “Fundamentals of Catholic Doctrine.. ”.. For more information, contact.. :.. Christendom College Admissions.. 134 Christendom Drive.. Front Royal, Virginia 22630.. (800) 877-5456.. The College of the Ozarks is a unique Christian Work College with about 1,400 students, located in Point Lookout, Missouri.. Dubbed as “Hard Work U.. ” by..
