Forbes Ranks Covenant College High in National List

Forbes Magazine, in its newly released ranking of America's Best Colleges, puts Covenant College #117 among the nation's colleges and universities.


"We are always delighted when people recognize Covenant for its strong program," said Covenant College President Niel Nielson. "We take such recognition with a very large grain of salt, in that we don't consider it a goal nor do we modify anything we do in order to gain it. But it's wonderful to hear such confirmation of our efforts!


"The Forbes criteria certainly correspond to some features of Covenant that we take very seriously: outstanding faculty, students, and alumni; overall financial value; and graduation rates."


A number of Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) member schools were present in the Forbes ranking, including: #91 Wheaton College, #117 Covenant College, #205 Biola University, #257 Westmont College, #308 Taylor University, #357 Messiah College, #372 Calvin College, and #374 Dordt College.


Other ranked schools in the Georgia and Tennessee region include: #67 Sewanee University of the South, #105 Vanderbilt University, #248 Berry College, and #282 Union University.
