Holy Cross Listed Among The Princeton Review’s ‘The Best 378 Colleges’

August 7th, 2013 by 


The College of the Holy Cross is one of the country’s best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review’s annual college guide, “The Best 378 Colleges.”  Schools included in the 2014 edition of the guide—which were selected according to several criteria including academics, cost, and financial aid—represent the top 15% of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges.

Holy Cross received an average score of 92.5, the highest average of the last six years of ranking. The score comes from eight ranking categories that include green issues, academics, interest in professors and accessibility of professors. The Princeton Review highlights the “countless opportunities to learn through internships, speaker series,” “strong student life,” and “small classes” as representation of the Holy Cross focus on shaping the whole student.

Noting the strength of Holy Cross’ academics, The Princeton Review says courses are “rigorous, and the main priority of students on campus,” and the faculty and administration foster “an incredible learning environment for students.” Emphasizing that students are “more than a number in the classroom,” the guide cites the dedication and accessibility of faculty who “get to know [students] on an individual and personal level.”

“Holy Cross equips their students with an intangible set of skills that not only prepares them for a job, but for life,” one student told The Princeton Review.

Also included were Holy Cross’ “tremendous sense of community,” “fantastic alumni network,” “exceptionally beautiful campus,” and superior science programs and undergraduate research opportunities.

Earlier in 2013, the Princeton Review listed Holy Cross as a “Best Value” college, one of 75 schools were selected according to several criteria including academics, cost, and financial aid. Additionally, three departments at Holy Cross—history, mathematics, and political science—are ranked among the best in the Princeton Review’s “Great Schools for 20 of the Most Popular Undergraduate Majors.”
