Rhodes College is featured in The Princeton Review’s “Colleges That Create Futures: 50 Schools That Launch Careers by Going Beyond the Classroom.” It made the cut out of several hundred colleges considered for the book.
Rhodes also was included on Best College Review’s list of the Top 50 Colleges with the Best Greek Life. It ranked No. 17 on the list; more than 50 percent of its students are involved in 14 fraternities and sororities.
Across Midtown, Christian Brothers University was recently named No. 19 in a list put out by BestValueSchools.com compiling the “50 Best Value Small Colleges for a Business Administration Degree 2015.” In the article, CBU is highlighted for its seven different concentrations for an undergraduate business degree.
CBU also gained several titles in U.S. News & World Report’s 2016 edition of “America’s Best Colleges.”
The university ranked No. 27 out of 127 schools included in the regional universities category. It also came in at No. 9 in best value for southern universities; No. 4 in campus ethnic diversity for southern universities; No. 22 in best colleges for veterans in the south; and was labeled as an “A+ School for B students.””
