Money Magazine Ranks Holy Cross No. 16 Among Best Liberal Arts Colleges in the Country

The College of the Holy Cross ranks No. 16 on Money Magazine’s list of “The 50 Best Liberal Arts Colleges,” and No. 65 overall on the publication’s list of “Best Colleges,” which ranked 705 colleges and universities nationwide.

According to Money, a subsidiary of TIME, Inc., colleges and universities with graduation rates below the median and financial struggles were screened out, while remaining institutions were ranked based on 24 factors in three categories: educational quality, affordability, and alumni success.

The publication highlights Holy Cross’ “need-blind” admissions policy, which “doesn’t consider an applicant’s ability to pay in making admissions decisions and promises to meet 100 percent of demonstrated need.” The College also gives about half of its student body “institutional need-based scholarships or grants.”

Recent graduates of the College have turned their liberal arts degrees into profitable careers, according to Money, and enter into an engaged and active alumni base. Students told Money that “the post-graduation prospects for Holy Cross students makes the price well worth it.”

“It’s a small school where professors provide frequent office hours, and students can seek help if needed,” one student said. Another student added, “The challenging academics guarantee that you will feel as though you are getting your money’s worth.”
