Virginia Wesleyan College has been honored as a College of Distinction for the 2014-2015 academic year, chosen for its excellence in student-focused higher education and its exemplary commitment to the Four Distinctions set forth by CollegesofDistinction.com: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant community and successful outcomes. Colleges of Distinction is a web-based guide for high school juniors and seniors seeking a school that is nationally recognized and highly recommended by professionals in the field of education. To become a College of Distinction, colleges and universities must be nominated by college counselors, college administrative members and the Colleges of Distinction selection team. Qualitative and quantitative research is then conducted and evaluated, including interviews and feedback from senior administration, faculty, alumni and current students, as well as graduation rates, classroom size and other key stats that speak to the Four Distinctions. “We focus on colleges that are the best places to learn, grow and succeed,” said Tyson Schritter, executive editor of Colleges of Distinction. “Schools designated as ‘Colleges of Distinction’ create well-rounded graduates and are among the very best in the country.” To view Virginia Wesleyan’s profile or for more information about the online guide, visit CollegesofDistinction.com.
