Graduates of the College of the Holy Cross are among the most loyal and satisfied in the country according to the most recent list released by U.S. News and World Report. Holy Cross ranks no. 8 in the nation for the number of alumni who make financial contributions to their alma maters, up from no. 9 in the last report.
An average of 52 percent of Holy Cross graduates donated to the College over the two-year period considered by U.S. News—over four times the nationwide average of 12.8 percent.
