Each school excels at the Four Distinctions: Engaged Students, Great Teaching, Vibrant Communities, and Successful Outcomes., an online guide that takes a fresh look at colleges and universities appealing to students' unique and varied interests.
Based on the opinions of guidance counselors, educators, and admissions professionals, Colleges of Distinction honors colleges excelling in key areas of educational quality.
"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 Colleges of Distinction. "While each school is one of a kind, they all share a common theme: they are all a great place to get an education."
"Being recognized by Colleges of Distinction is a wonderful achievement that distinguishes McMurry University's unique approach to experiential education and career preparation through internships, study abroad, faculty-led research and servant leadership learning," said Dr. Paul Fabrizio, Vice President for Academic Affairs at McMurry University. "It is a testament to our administration, faculty and staff that McMurry continues to be commended by objective reviewers for fostering an outstanding learning environment for our students."
In order to qualify, McMurry was required to demonstrate excellence in the four distinctions: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities, and successful outcomes.
The goal of Colleges of Distinction is to provide students, counselors, and parents with information about colleges and universities that excel in these four areas. Featured schools take a holistic approach to admissions, consistently excel in providing undergraduate education, and have a truly national reputation.
Offering dynamic college profiles and easy-to-use search tools, the website includes tips from high school guidance counselors, essays from college students, presidents and other members of campus communities.
