Based on the opinions of guidance counselors, educators, and admissions professionals, Colleges of Distinction™ honors colleges excelling in key areas of educational quality.
“Schools selected as Colleges of Distinction™ create well-rounded graduates and are among the very best in the country,” reports Tyson Schritter, the Executive Editor of Colleges of Distinction™. “While each school is one of a kind, they all share a common theme: they are all a great place to get an education.”
In order to qualify, Hofstra University was required to demonstrate excellence in the four distinctions: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities, and successful outcomes. The goal of Colleges of Distinction™ is to provide students, counselors, and parents with information about colleges and universities that excel in these four areas. Featured schools take a holistic approach to admissions, consistently excel in providing undergraduate education, and have a truly national reputation.
