Notre Dame, IN, (September 10, 2019)—Holy Cross College has been ranked in the top thirty of Midwest’s Best Regional Colleges, according to the U.S. News and World Report’s 2020 Best College Rankings released yesterday morning. The College was also ranked as 31st for best value, and came in 47th place for top performance in social mobility.

This year’s rankings are evidence of the turnaround since the Board of Trustees appointed Rev. David T. Tyson, C.S.C., as the College’s president in 2017.

“I’m pleased that this truly remarkable place of Catholic higher education has been ranked as such,” said president of the College Rev. David T. Tyson, C.S.C. “It is a true reflection of the work of our devoted faculty, trustees, and administration. This recognition highlights the difference they make, enhancing the development and success of these young men and women through an exceptional liberal arts education.”

The rankings used by the U.S. News and World Report are based on such widely accepted indicators of excellence as first-year student retention, graduation rates, and the strength of faculty.
