TRINITY NAMED ONE OF AMERICA'S BEST COLLEGES

Trinity found itself in good company once again when U.S. News & World Report ranked the College among America's Best Colleges for the 2004-05 academic year. The national magazine placed Trinity in the top tier of Midwest comprehensive colleges that offer bachelor's degrees in liberal arts and professional fields, such as business, nursing, and education.

"We are thankful that they have recognized us as a leading institution of higher education," President Steven Timmermans said. "Although our inclusion in their rankings brings greater visibility to the College and our mission, we will continue to remain attentive to the standards and goals we have set for ourselves."

U.S. News & World Report measured academic quality by considering peer assessment, student retention, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources, graduation rate, and alumni giving. The College also earned accolades for being one of the leaders in campus diversity within the region.

"This announcement acknowledges the tremendous work we're accomplishing here at the College," said Provost Liz Rudenga. "The momentum we've established in recent years is seen in top-notch instruction and our commitment to excellence, which have propelled us to great heights. People are becoming more aware of the quality education that Trinity offers, and we want to continue developing programs that will produce students of high caliber and character."
