“For the second consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report names Emmanuel College as tier one among private colleges and again ranks EC as a Best Regional College (South),” President Michael Stewart announces.
“Last year was the first time in our history to be ranked tier one, which is the highest level of achievement. This year we are also pleased to move ahead 12 ranks to up to 57th place in the 2014 rankings,” he adds.
This is exciting and encouraging news as Emmanuel College remains focused on its mission as a Christ-centered college to integrate faith, learning and living for effective careers, scholarship and service. This is also the second straight year total enrollment is above 800 students for this growing institution.
“We are honored and continue to be grateful for the commitment and dedication of all our employees and board members who have made this possible. We also appreciate our talented students, who do well here and go on to successful, meaningful careers after graduation,” he says.
These rankings are considered to provide the most indepth and complete rankings in higher education. They are based on evaluations of the top accredited four-year schools in the country and focus almost entirely on the undergraduate experience in a broad range of programs in the liberal arts fields.
