SXU named to 2012-13 “Illinois Colleges of Distinction” list

Saint Xavier University recently was named to the 2012-13 “Illinois Colleges of Distinction” list.

Colleges of Distinction honors schools that engage students, offer great teaching, create vibrant campus communities, and foster successful outcomes. It aims to identify colleges and universities “that take a holistic approach to admissions decisions, that consistently excel in providing undergraduate education, and that have a truly national reputation.”

The list is generated through quantitative data, such as graduation rates, classroom size, and other key statistics, as well as qualitative data, including feedback from admission experts, high school counselors, and visits to campuses.

“We are proud that Colleges of Distinction recognizes Saint Xavier’s commitment to creating an engaging campus community focused on academic excellence,” said SXU Vice President for University Relations Robert Tenczar.
