Wheelock College Selected as a College of Distinction
December 04, 2006Wheelock College has been chosen by the independent committee of high school and college admissions professionals for inclusion in the inaugural edition of the College of Distinction guidebook. Wheelock is one of fewer than 300 chosen for this honor.
The Colleges of Distinction guidebook, which will be published in early 2007, will assist high school students and parents in finding colleges that suit individual personalities and career objectives. Because the majority of college-bound teenagers do not attend the elite, name-brand institutions, the Colleges of Distinction guidebook will highlight four-year institutions that are considered hidden “gems.” The book is based on the free online search tool by the same name, www.collegesofdistinction.com.
Schools selected for the Colleges of Distinction guidebook are based on the organization’s four pillars of a solid undergraduate education: student engagement in the educational process, great teaching, vibrant learning communities and successful outcomes.
Other institutions selected in Massachusetts include Assumption College, Bentley College, Emmanuel College, Gordon College, Hampshire College, Lesley University, Merrimack College, Pine Manor College, Regis College, Simmons College, Stonehill College, Western New England College and Worcester Polytechnic College.
