Georgetown only 3rd best Roman Catholic university in US
Rankings by USA Today declared Georgetown University the third “best Roman Catholic college” in the country, behind the University of Notre Dame and College of the Holy Cross, who ranked first and second, respectively.
The rankings were ordered based USA Today’s College Factual quality ranking system—a system that ranks schools mainly on how many students default on loans, how many students graduate after six years, and how much money students earn after they leave school.
As the rankings had an element of religiosity and spirituality, campus ministry was highlighted for providing students with services, retreats, and lectures.
Other schools on the list included rivals Villanova University in sixth place and Providence College in seventh.
In case anyone was feeling shut out by the low rating on such a prestigious rank list, USA Today reminded readers “admission to Georgetown is extremely selective and requires hard work.” Go ahead—pat yourself on the back.
