Providence College designated an “Exceptional School”
August 27, 2011
The website CollegeGuide.org, published by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, recently released a report titled “Rating America’s Colleges” that evaluates institutions based primarily on the criteria of “how well (or badly) a school does at providing the classic ‘liberal education’ suited to a free citizen and a well-rounded adult.” In this report, Providence College was ranked as their “#7 Exceptional School.”
Providence College was founded by the Province of St. Joseph in 1917. Dominican Friars serve the college as faculty, campus ministers, and administrators. Earlier this month, two recent graduates of the college completed their Novitiate and have been assigned to the Dominican House of Studies, continuing a long tradition of PC Alumni joining the Order of Preachers.
