Stonehill Named to 2012-13 Colleges of Distinction List
October 22, 2012
In an unranked list of top colleges and universities in North America, Stonehill was one of only 19 schools in Massachusetts to earn the honor. A total of 294 colleges and universities representing 42 states and two countries (U.S. & Canada) were named to the Colleges of Distinction list for the 2012-2013 school year.
Schools are nominated for participation in Colleges of Distinction through high school counselors' recommendations as well as quantitative research. Schools featured on CollegesofDistinction.com represent the cutting edge of higher education including experiential learning, study abroad, and internships.
"These schools are among the very best in North America. Each school goes above and beyond the Four Distinctions that reallymake an undergraduate education: Great Students, Engaged Teaching, Vibrant Communities, and Successful Outcomes," said Tyson Schritter, Executive Editor of the Colleges of Distinction eGuidebook and its corresponding website.
