A Primer to the Freedom’s Hill Primer


Thanks for checking out the blog for the Carolina Institute of Faith and Culture!

You can find over 400 posts here, a number growing by the day, so you’d be excused for feeling a tad bewildered about where to begin.

Whether you’re visiting for the first time or just looking to make an informed deep dive into the Primer’s archive, these posts are a great place to start.

Check out a series of conversations with SWU professors (from English, History, Media Communications, and Religion), honors students, and other academics.

Interested in C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, G.K. Chesterton and other Christian writers? You can start with the posts here.

Dr. Paul Schleifer has been writing his always on-point “Word of the Day” column for awhile. Looking for an entry point? Students particularly liked his entries for the words “rotund” and “vacillate.”

SWU students have contribute some of the site’s best work, ranging from analysis of great literature to book, film, and theater reviews as well as some simply humorous observations about life and literature. Our Media Communications students have also showcased their work on the site, and it’s well worth checking out.

Finally, some SWU’s faculty have contributed thought-provoking essays on education.

If you find some other gems here, let us know.
