Holy Cross College Named a College of Distinction

National college guide honors distinctive educational excellence

NOTRE DAME, IN (July 31, 2014) -- Holy Cross College has been honored as a College of Distinction for the 2014-2015 school year. The College of Distinction designation is given to select schools to honor their excellence in student-focused higher education. Holy Cross was found to excel in all Four Distinctions and will receive a personal profile on the Colleges of Distinction™ website.

Colleges of Distinction is a web-based guide for high school juniors and seniors seeking a school that is nationally recognized and highly recommended by professionals in the field of education. Colleges and universities are nominated for participation by high school counselors, and then evaluated using qualitative and quantitative research. Schools selected must excel in the Four Distinctions: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities, and successful outcomes. The colleges and universities are not ranked and instead are members of a consortium of other equally impressive schools.

“We focus on colleges that are the best places to learn, grow and succeed,” said Tyson Schritter, executive editor of Colleges of Distinction. “Schools designated as ‘Colleges of Distinction’ create well-rounded graduates and are among the very best in the country.”

Holy Cross College President, Br. John R. Paige, C.S.C. stated, “Here at Holy Cross College we say ‘The Experience Matters.’ I am pleased that the college is again recognized by our educational peers as providing a formative and transformative experience for the young people who matriculate here.”
