From Protest School to Campus: San Francisco’s Campion College
National Catholic Register
by Tim Drake

The University of San Francisco might argue about how its nextdoor neighbor, Campion College, came into being, but there’s one thing it can’t argue about: Campion’s student-teacher ratio. Fresh into its second semester, with 25 students and 13 faculty members Campion can boast of having the best student-teacher ratio of any Catholic College in the country.

Campion College Hits the Ground Running
New Oxford Review

If we do say so ourselves, we found Michael Torre's NOR article (Oct.) about the fall of the St. Ignatius Institute at the University of San Francisco and the birth of Campion College most fascinating. The new Campion College of San Francisco was organized very quickly and is now in its first year of existence. How, we wondered, is it doing?

Campion's Brag Newsletter
by the Students of Campion College

Dear Students, Parents, Friends and the Just Plain Curious, This issue marks the maiden voyage of not only Campion College but also this largely student-written newsletter— Campion’s Brag. The title is lifted from St. Edmund Campion’s own booklet written as a defense of the Catholic Church, an effort he continued verbally right up to this execution on the scaffold.

by Tim Drake

SAN FRANCISCO - Just two weeks following the announcement by Ignatius Press of the creation of Campion College, Jesuit Father Joseph Fessio has been barred from having any role with the college.

National Review Online - Firing Fessio
by Stanley Kurtz

A long-running battle over the fate of the Saint Ignatius Institute, a small but influential great-books program at the University of San Francisco, is rapidly turning into a test of the survivability of traditional Catholicism in America — and of the admissibility of traditional religious belief to the academy.

The American Prowler - Jesuits Implode
by George Neumayr

The office for the Jesuit Province in California confirmed to TAP that Joseph Fessio, the prolific San Francisco Jesuit publisher of orthodox books and publications, has been ordered to leave San Francisco for a new assignment, effective in May, at an obscure Catholic hospital in Duarte, California. Fessio's banishment coincides with his recent announcement to start a traditional Catholic school called Campion College next door to the openly dissenting Jesuit University of San Francisco, a school which in recent years has advertised such pagan oddities as a "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Student Alliance."
