The Wall Street Journal (subscription required) reports that the College of the Holy Cross is one of the nation’s top Catholic colleges, ranking it fourth in the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education College Rankings.

The WSJ/THE College Rankings constitute a comparative assessment of more than 1,000 universities and colleges in the nation. The assessment is based on 14 individual performance indicators designed to answer the questions that matter the most to students and their families.

The overall ranking is made up of four categories: graduate outcomes, academic resources, student engagement and environment, as a measure of diversity in the student body and faculty.

Highlights of the rankings are available online at WSJ.com. The complete rankings are published on the WSJ/THE college rankings website, at on.wsj.com/rankings-tool.

    I found this email message from Holy Cross to be mildly dispiriting. I’m not absolutely sure if dispiriting is a word, but my spell check did not activate so I will go with it. I’m not dispirited because HC ranks only fourth, but because I clicked on the link to read the full article only to discover I have to pay to subscribe to the Wall Street Journal to read the full article. The first line of the WSJ article is visible and credits Notre Dame as number one, but poorer readers like me who can’t afford to pay to read the Wall Street Journal are left to guess who is number two and number three. I’ll guess B.C. and Georgetown in any order and ask you to respond to me with the correct answer.

    Great story– great to see four Jesuit colleges in the top ranked schools!
