Three Catholic colleges recommended in The Newman Guide were recently named among “The Best 100 U.S. Colleges and Universities by State” by TheBestSchools.org.
The top 100 were chosen by selecting the best four year liberal-arts college and the best full-fledged university in each of the fifty states. The criteria considered for each college included the “reputation of the school and its faculty, its dedication to a broad liberal arts education, its accreditation, and its overall academic caliber compared to other institutions of the same type within the same state,” according to the website.
Benedictine College in Atchison, Kan., Thomas More College of Liberal Arts in Merrimack, N.H., and University of Dallas in Irving, Tex., were each chosen as the best four year-liberal arts college in their respective states.
Benedictine College President Stephen D. Minnis stated:
As with U.S. News& World Report and the Newman Guide, these lists continue to confirm that we are achieving our mission and vision… This lets everyone know what our students, faculty and staff can already see; that Benedictine College is becoming one of the great Catholic colleges in America.
