The Economist Ranks Trinity Christian College Among Top 15 Best Values in Illinois
Friday, 08 January 2016
In its first-ever list of college rankings, The Economist magazine has placed Trinity Christian College among the top 15 colleges in Illinois for value.
Leveraging information from the U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard website for four-year non-vocational colleges, The Economist created its rankings based on the premise that the “economic value of a university is equal to the gap between how much money its students subsequently earn, and how much they might have made had they studied elsewhere.”
The Economist analyzed the class of 2001’s median income 10 years after graduation. It considered a variety of factors, including gender, race, the size of the college, average SAT scores and the number of students receiving Pell Grants for working-class students.
Based on multiple factors and analysis, The Economist found Trinity Christian College provides one of the best values in Illinois.
