Wednesday, 11 September 2013
Trinity Christian College has been ranked 28th among Regional Colleges—Midwest by U.S.News & World Report in “Best Colleges” for 2014. A total of 367 colleges are ranked in the entire Regional category.
Trinity also ranked 8th in the area of Campus Ethnic Diversity: Regional Colleges—Midwest. This ranking speaks to the College’s continued commitment to develop a multi-racial, multi-national, and multi-denominational student body.
The College stands among other institutions in the Regional Colleges category that offer a wide range of degree programs in the liberal arts and in fields such as business, education, and nursing. The U.S. News rankings are based on several criteria, including peer assessment, graduation and freshmen retention rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources, and alumni giving.
From the first day of class to commencement to participating in God’s kingdom, the living and breathing qualities of a Trinity education are evident,” said Provost Liz Rudenga, Ph.D. “We are pleased to be recognized by U.S. News but know that qualities which can’t necessarily be ‘ranked’ permeate our campus.
“It is evident when students and professors engage in conversation during First Year Forum, as athletic contests are held, as students participate in internships, and as professors serve as mentors to students.”
The College has been listed by Washington Monthly among hundreds of the nation’s top colleges in the 2013 Baccalaureate College Rankings.
Trinity has also been named to the 2014 Military Friendly Schools list by Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life.
