JOY IN THE TRUTH

AT AVE MARIA UNIVERSITY
STRENGTHEN YOUR FAITH

Vibrant Catholic Culture

According to Pope St. John Paul II, “God made us for joy.” At Ave, you’ll see the excitement that overflows as students discover the intersection between truth and beauty. You'll hear the laughter echoing around campus as they embrace the abundance of God’s plan. We know joy is found in Christ, and we strive to encounter Him in our classes, residence halls, athletics, and most notably, in the Sacraments.

We’re educating the next generation of Saints: people prepared to use their exceptional formation and God-given passion to transform the world around them.
