)-- Adelphi University is featured on CollegesofDistinction.com, an online guide that takes a fresh look at colleges and universities appealing to students’ unique and varied interests. Based on the opinions of guidance counselors, educators, and admissions professionals, Colleges of Distinction™ honors colleges excelling in key areas of educational quality.
“Schools selected as Colleges of Distinction™ create well-rounded graduates and are among the very best in the country,” reports Tyson Schritter, the executive editor of Colleges of Distinction™. “While the schools are unique, they all share a common theme: they are all a great place to get an education.”
In order to qualify, Adelphi University was required to demonstrate excellence in the 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 colleges and universities that excel in these four areas. Featured schools take a holistic approach to admissions, consistently excel in providing undergraduate education, and have a truly national reputation.
Offering dynamic college profiles and easy-to-use search tools, the website includes tips from high school guidance counselors, essays from college students, presidents and other members of campus communities.
