Graduates of the College of the Holy Cross are among the most loyal and satisfied in the country according to a new list released by U.S. News and World Report.  Holy Cross ranks no. 9 in the nation for the number of alumni who make financial contributions to their alma maters.

More than 51 percent of Holy Cross graduates donated to the College over the two-year period considered by U.S. News—significantly exceeding the nationwide average of 13 percent.

To calculate each school’s alumni giving rate U.S. News averages school reports of the percentage of all alumni who graduated with an undergraduate degree and donated funds in 2009-10 with those who did in 2010-11.
