Ave Maria, Florida – the town with a Catholic heart.©™ Stories & information for residents & visitors.

Did somebody say Harvard and Ave Maria are equivalent?

The thing about Ave Maria is that it is still new, and therefore it makes sense that people aren’t quite sure what to make of it (i.e. the community, which consists of both town and university). This blog is an exercise in trying to help people have information so they can know what to make of it. And so is this article by professor Michael Pakaluk, which explains how some of the best things that can happen are happening here:

… So, simply with respect to what was found to be best at Harvard, it seems we can conclude that Harvard and Ave Maria are equivalent (or better, if London Pride at the Queen Mary Pub is better than tea). … It would be absurd to claim that Ave Maria has everything that Harvard has.  For instance, we do not have the noise, pollution, and crime which are found in a city.  We do not have any dirty piles and pools of slush to trudge through in March. …

Of course Michael’s keen wit is worth reading. Go click –  it’s short and funny (and he makes some great points). And the quote from A Man for All Seasons is precious.
