Former president of St. John's University dies

He retired while I was a student there, and I don't think that the school had any particularly Catholic flavor to it then, or now. The article points out that the school grew to become the largest Catholic University under Fr. Cahill and that the school had relatively few problems when he retired. Unfortunately the article could not say that the school grew to become more Catholic or that it taught Catholicism to students. St. John's is another University that would best be described as formerly Catholic.
