Colleges of Distinction 2012-13

Rollins College has again been featured on Colleges of Distinction, a website dedicated to honoring schools nationwide for their excellence in student-focused higher education. Rollins is recognized for consistently providing a remarkable undergraduate experience and producing successful graduates.

“Schools designated as ‘Colleges of Distinction’ create well-rounded graduates and are among the very best in the country,” said Tyson Schritter, executive editor of Colleges of Distinction.

Colleges and universities are nominated for participation in Colleges of Distinction through high school counselors’ recommendations as well as quantitative research.

Once nominated, the colleges are assessed using the Four Distinctions: student engagement, quality of teaching, vibrancy of the college community, and success of graduates. Schools featured on Colleges of Distinction must meet minimum standards in each category.

Rollins was found to excel in all of the Four Distinctions and has a personal profile on the Colleges of Distinction website.

Colleges of Distinction offers dynamic college profiles and easy-to-use search tools for students, parents, and counselors. The website includes tips from high school guidance counselors and essays from college students, presidents, and other members of campus communities.

“While each school is one of a kind, they all share a common theme: they are all a great place to get an education,” Schritter said.
