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 379 Colleges.”  Schools included in the 2015 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 93, the highest average of the last seven years of ranking. The score comes from eight ranking categories that include green issues, academics, interest in professors and accessibility of professors.

Holy Cross also ranks no. 9 among the schools having the most accessible professors. 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 or on the field,” the guide cites the dedication and accessibility of faculty who “get to know [students] on an individual and personal level.”

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.

“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.

Holy Cross was also noted for its “tremendous sense of community,” “fantastic alumni network,” “exceptionally beautiful campus,” and superior science programs and undergraduate research opportunities.
