SJC Honored for Excellence in Educational Quality

BROOKLYN AND PATCHOGUE, N.Y. – FEBRUARY 28, 2011 – St. Joseph’s College is pleased to announce that it was recently 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.

“St. Joseph’s College is pleased to join a very select group of colleges and universities for inclusion into the Colleges of Distinction,” said SJC Vice President of Enrollment Management Theresa LaRocca Meyer. “We are thrilled to be recognized for our approach in educating our students and for the positive learning environment that we provide them with.”

In order to qualify, St. Joseph’s College was required to demonstrate excellence in 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.

“Schools selected as Colleges of Distinction create well-rounded graduates and are among the very best in the country,” reports Executive Editor of Colleges of Distinction Tyson Schritter. “While each school is one of a kind, they all share a common theme: they are all a great place to get an education.”
