Geneva College

 

 

Geneva recognized as a College of Distinction

COD12-13_icon.pngGeneva College is now featured on CollegesofDistinction.com, a website dedicated to honoring schools nationwide for their excellence in student-focused higher education.

“Schools designated as ‘Colleges of Distinction’ create well-rounded graduates and are among the very best in the country,” said Tyson Schritter, Executive Editor of Colleges of Distinction™.

Colleges and universities are nominated for participation in Colleges of Distinction™ through high school counselors’ recommendations as well as quantitative research.

Once nominated, the colleges are assessed using the Four Distinctions: student engagement, quality of teaching, vibrancy of the college community and success of graduates. Schools featured on CollegesofDistinction.com must meet minimum standards in each category.

Geneva College was found to excel in all Four Distinctions and will receive a personal profile on the Colleges of Distinction™ website.

“At Geneva, the faculty, staff, and administration all strive to set the standard in Christian education.  Being named a ‘College of Distinction’ is just one affirmation that we are successfully preparing our students to be faithful professionals, community members, and builders of Christ’s kingdom,” said Geneva’s president, Dr. Kenneth A. Smith.

CollegeofDistinction.com offers dynamic college profiles and easy-to-use search tools for students, parents, and counselors. The website includes tips from high school guidance counselors, essays from college students, presidents and other members of campus communities.

“While each school is one of a kind, they all share a common theme: they are all a great place to get an education,” Schritter said.
