Geneva College Receives High Honors for Value, Academic Excellence and Beauty

You could take our admittedly biased word that enrolling in Geneva College is a great decision that is guaranteed to change your life, or you could trust the many impartial voices of praise that have recently honored our school.

Geneva College serves our students through nearly 40 undergraduate majors, high-demand advanced graduate degrees, adult degree programs, and fully online and campus-based options. Our 13:1 student/faculty ratio fosters the development of close relationships in our school’s Christian community.

Our Christ-centered academic community’s mission is to provide a comprehensive education that equips students for faithful and fruitful service to God and neighbor. Geneva is honored to be recognized for our efforts with several recent commendations.

Best Value Christian College

Geneva College was listed in the top 50 ranking of Best Value Christian Colleges and Universities in the U.S. for 2016 by the leading independent Christian education resource, Christian Universities Online (CUO). This ranking acknowledges our commitment to offering students the highest quality of education for a reasonably priced tuition.

Anna Rebekah Orr, associate editor for the ranking, confirmed that some of the schools listed in the second annual 50 Best Value Schools “are able to deliver to their students much more than they pay for.” We believe this is true of Geneva.

Best Christian College

Geneva was also included in the CUO’s 50 Best Christian Colleges and Universities for the 2015-2016 academic year, a ranking that highlights intentionally Christian colleges and universities that shine in categories of personal attention to their students, retention and graduation rates, readily available financial aid, selectivity and overall student satisfaction.

Most Beautiful Christian College

Our beautiful 55-acre campus in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania moved up two spots—from sixth to fourth—on Christian Universities Online’s 2016 ranking of the 50 Most Beautiful Christian Colleges and Universities. Schools that are members, or eligible to be members, of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities are scored in four areas: continuity and layout of campus, signature buildings, architectural style and natural setting.

Our Ivy League-style architecture filled with over a century of history combined with our beautiful natural surroundings on a lush, wooded campus provide yet another incentive for students to choose Geneva.

Kiplinger’s Best College Value

Geneva College has been named to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance’s list of the Top 300 Best College Values of 2016 recognized for our commitment to providing outstanding academics at an affordable cost. We also earned the #78 spot on the magazine’s list of 100 Best Values in Private Universities.

U.S. News & World Report’s Best College

We were again recognized for excellence in multiple categories in U.S. News & World Report’s annual college rankings. The 2016 Best Colleges rankings found Geneva College getting the nod in: Best Value, Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs and Best Regional Colleges. In addition, we are proud to be named for the first time in the publication’s web-exclusive ranking for Best Colleges for Veterans.

For the fourth consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report named Geneva′s engineering program as one of the nation′s Top 100 Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs, a ranking based on a peer assessment survey.
