Washington Monthly ranked the College of the Holy Cross 28th on their 2013 list of top liberal arts colleges that provide the “Best Bang for the Buck,” which is a new rankings set based on the economic value students receive per dollar. According to the Washington Monthly website, “we highlight those colleges that use their resources to effectively educate students at a relatively low cost.”
Washington Monthly also ranked the College 87th in their 2013 list of the country’s top liberal arts colleges, based on their “contribution to the public good.”
Schools were ranked according to three main criteria, including social mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), research (producing cutting-edge scholarship), and service (encouraging students to give something back to their country).
