September 15, 2014 (Jackson) - Belhaven University was honored for the fifth consecutive year as a College of Distinction. The 2014-2015 College of Distinction designation is given to select schools to honor their excellence in student-focused higher education.
Belhaven was recognized in all four distinctions: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities and successful outcomes. The goal of Colleges of Distinction is to provide students, counselors and parents with information about schools that excel in these key areas.
Tyson Schritter, Executive Editor of Colleges of Distinction, said, We take an unbiased look at the admission process and look at the myths surrounding college admissions, provide tools for self-assessment and provide insights from college admissions professionals, high school counselors, students and parents. Schools designated as 'Colleges of Distinction' create well-rounded graduates and are among the very best in the country.
Colleges of Distinction is a web-based guide for high school juniors and seniors seeking a school that is nationally recognized and highly recommended by professionals in the field of education. Colleges and universities are nominated for participation by high school counselors, and then evaluated using qualitative and quantitative research.
