Illinois College honored for distinctive educational excellence
Illinois College is now featured on CollegesofDistinction.com, a website dedicated to honoring schools nationwide for their excellence in student-focused higher education.

“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. Illinois College was found to excel in the four distinctions used in assessing possible Colleges of Distiction – student engagement, quality of teaching, vibrancy of the college community and success of graduates. Schools must meet minimum standards in each category.

“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.
