AUSTIN, Texas, April 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Colleges of Distinction has released its Christian Colleges of Distinction 2017 Guidebook, and it is available for immediate download. The guidebook is a unique and thoroughly researched resource for those who want a reliable and personalized approach to the college selection and application process, specifically for Christian colleges and universities.
"Colleges of Distinction is an excellent guide that every college-going student should use. The opening section should be required reading for college-bound families. The insights provided will aid in navigating the search process and arriving at the right institution," said Matthew R. Thompson, Ph.D., President and CEO of Kansas Wesleyan University, a 2017 Christian College of Distinction.
In the 2017 guidebook, Colleges of Distinction goes beyond the biased assumptions of mainstream, numerical rankings and popularity surveys in order to find the best schools. The guide features Christian colleges and universities not usually found when scanning a typical top ten list, but instead features those that consistently provide a remarkable undergraduate education as well as valuable life experiences.
Each college and university is subject to a rigorous research process before it is listed in the guidebook. This research produces verifiable results across Four Distinctions — Engaged Students, Great Teaching, Vibrant Community and Successful Outcomes.
"The selected schools emphasize core skills such as critical thinking, writing, research and global perspectives," said Chief Operating Officer Tyson Schritter. "They also offer out-of-classroom learning programs, have smaller class sizes and focus on students' individual needs."
Below are a few of the 2017 Christian Colleges of Distinction:
- Messiah College
- John Brown University
- Calvin College
- Dallas Baptist University
- Colorado Christian University
The complete list of all colleges and universities selected for the Christian Colleges of Distinction 2017 Guidebook is available on the company's website.
