‘Fiske Guide’ Includes Holy Cross Among ‘Best and Most Interesting’ Colleges

July 28th, 2014 by 

Once again, the College of the Holy Cross has been included in the “Fiske Guide to Colleges.” Compiled by former New York Times education editor Edward B. Fiske, the 2015 edition of the guide is a selective and systematic look at more than 300 colleges and universities in the U.S., Canada, and Great Britain. Colleges featured in this year’s guide were selected with several principles in mind, including academic ratings, price category, and quality of student life on campus. The guide presents college-bound students, parents and guidance counselors with “best and most interesting” schools during their college search.

Holy Cross is noted for its small classes and professor accessibility, as well as the students’ commitment to the Jesuit tradition of becoming “men and women for others.” The guide also gives readers a glimpse into the College’s various academic and volunteer programs, including  the Montserrat program, community-based learning and Student Programs for Urban Development (SPUD). Holy Cross is described as having a “close-knit atmosphere” and offering “students a multitude of opportunities to serve others, challenge themselves, and create lasting friendships.” One student is quoted saying, “There is an unrivaled sense of community here.”

This is a “Holy Cross in the News” item by Evangelia Stefanakos.
