There is no place for ‘snowflakes’: a Conservative Christian college ready to open in 2018



New college to focus on a conservative Christian values

Sattler College founder Finns Kuruvilla details of the Boston school, the mission on ‘Fox & Friends.’

A new conservative Christian university – freedom of “safe places” and students screaming helplessly in the air – is set to open in 2018.


Sattler College will, instead, focus on the three c’s: core academics, Christian character and education costs down.

Boston-area businessman Finns Kuruvilla, who founded Sattler, appeared on “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday to preview the new school.

“The modern education system is too expensive, it is scientifically weak, and it is hostile to the faith,” Kuruvilla said. “These institutions are very difficult to change, and so we decided to create our own college in Boston, Massachusetts.”

He pointed out that the average student, after four years of college, is worse off when it comes to issues like pornography addiction, drug use, cheating and promiscuity. He wants to Sattler to “focus on the whole person,” instead of only on GPA or college transcripts.

“It is time for a revolution to get college back on track to thinking about the character as much as they think about the development of the spirit,” Kuruville said, adding that, because this is a Christian college, it will keep students “mass.”


The college’s mission statement reads: “Sattler College wants to prepare students to serve Christ, the church and the world. Our mission is to be the classroom education that teaches about the spirit, discipleship, which gives shape to the soul and inspiration that inflames the heart.”

Sattler College hopes to write about 300 students, with tuition fees set at only $ 9,000 per year – a fraction of what most private college charge. The liberal arts school about five majors at the beginning: human biology, computer science, biblical and religious studies, history and business.

The school plans to one day expand into the world of journalism.

Kuruvilla earned a medical degree and D. Ph. from Harvard university and preach to the Followers of the Way, a small church in Medford, a suburb of Boston.
