Oglethorpe Named Among Colleges of Distinction

After making the Forbes and U.S. News’ Best Colleges Lists, Oglethorpe has once again caught the eye of the nation.

Student Horizons, Inc has released its 2010–2011 list of Colleges of Distinction. The list, found at CollegesofDistinction.com, is a free, non-subscription online guide that recognizes colleges and universities that appeal to students’ unique and varied interests. This year’s list includes 170 schools in 39 states.

For the past eight years, Colleges of Distinction has honored colleges excelling in four areas of distinction: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities, and successful outcomes.

Founded by concerned parents and admissions professionals, Student Horizons, Inc.’s mission is to enable students to find colleges and universities that appeal to and complement their unique personalities and aspirations while helping to educate and produce well-rounded and varied individuals.

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

…We agree.
