Indiana Private College Week

NOTRE DAME, IN (July 17, 2012) - The Office of the Governor has proclaimed July 23 - 27, 2012, as Indiana Private College Week.  During this special week, all 31 private, nonprofit colleges and universities across the State of Indiana - including Holy Cross College -- will open their campus doors to students, parents, and any others interested in the college selection and admissions process.

Independent Colleges of Indiana (ICI members) enroll 20 percent of all undergraduates attending institutions of higher education, yet produce 35 percent of all bachelor's degrees awarded by the state.  Additionally, students attending independent colleges in Indiana are twice as likely as their peers at public, four-year institutions, to graduate in four years, thus contributing toward an educated workforce in a shorter time.

Visitors between the ages of 16 and 20 touring Holy Cross College and other ICI campuses during Private College Week will have the chance to enter a drawing for an Apple iPad.  Entry forms and rules will be available at each of the independent college campuses.

The week is sponsored by Independent Colleges of Indiana.

Holy Cross College is a Catholic, four-year, co-educational, liberal arts institution founded in 1966 by the Brothers of Holy Cross.  With a 13:1 faculty/student ratio, students find personal attention from professors who care about their success and development in mind, body, and spirit. The Four Pillars of the core curriculum include a professional internship, service to others, a global perspective experience, and a senior Capstone presentation which summarizes and synthesizes each student's learning. Located in Notre Dame, Indiana, Holy Cross College provides the best of both worlds: a close-knit, small college atmosphere with the resources and social opportunities of a large university.
