Washington Monthly has ranked the College of the Holy Cross No. 23 on its list of top liberal arts colleges in the country, noting the College is “one of America’s oldest Catholic liberal arts colleges.”
“It’s a standout in three areas: students are unusually likely to graduate on time, get well-paying jobs, and pay off their loans,” Washington Monthly writes. “Even in a time of burgeoning debt, price inflation, and uncertain labor markets, some colleges excel at the nuts-and-bolts value proposition of higher education: a supportive path to a diploma and a career. Holy Cross is one.”
The publication measured schools based on what they are doing for the country, assessing their success in recruiting and graduating low income students, producing cutting edge scholarship, and encouraging students to give back to their country through service.
