For the fifth consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report names Emmanuel College as tier one among private colleges and ranks EC in the Top 50 as a Best Regional College (South).
For 2017, Emmanuel College moves up 13 ranks from the previous year to 29th place in regional rankings.
"The growing quality at Emmanuel is evident in the dedicated faculty and staff,” says Dr. Ronald G. White, President of Emmanuel College. “Of course, our students contribute to the quality as well through their incredible accomplishments and outcomes. We will continue our quest for excellence in every area of endeavor open to us. I am so grateful to all who have contributed to our success."
This was Emmanuel’s second consecutive year of record-breaking enrollment and the first time breaking the 900 barrier, with 920 total students.
“This is wonderful news, but I am not surprised that we continue to rise up the chart,” said Lyquaia Stowers Purcell, Assistant Vice President for Admissions. “This is the second consecutive year we have exceeded our all-time attendance record. Interest continues to grow in Emmanuel, so much that we have had to add preview event dates to the calendar to accommodate the level of interest. I believe this is attributed to our amazing faculty and staff who continue to make Emmanuel College a wonderful place for students to truly integrate faith, learning, and living!”
This is exciting and encouraging news as Emmanuel College remains focused on its mission as a Christ-centered college to integrate faith, learning and living for effective careers, scholarship and service.
Rankings by U.S. News and World Report are considered to provide the most in-depth and complete rankings in higher education. They are based on evaluations of the top accredited four-year schools in the country and focus almost entirely on the undergraduate experience in a broad range of programs in the liberal arts fields.
