Hollins Among the Nation’s Top 100 Liberal Arts Colleges that Contribute to the Public Good

Washington Monthly

Hollins University is one of the top 100 liberal arts colleges in the nation, according to Washington Monthly’s 2015 College Guide and Rankings.

Hollins is ranked #98 and is one of only four Virginia colleges to earn a spot in the top 100, joining Emory & Henry College (#36), Washington and Lee University (#56), and the University of Richmond (#79).

Washington Monthly says its college guide differs from similar publications in that it “asks not what colleges can do for you, but what colleges are doing for the country.

“We rate schools based on their contribution to the public good in three broad categories: Social Mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), Research (producing cutting-edge style scholarship and PhDs), and Service (encouraging students to give something back to their country).”
