St. Norbert College is featured on CollegesofDistinction.com, an online guide that takes a fresh look at colleges and universities appealing to students' unique and varied interests. Based on the opinions of guidance counselors, educators and admissions professionals, Colleges of Distinction™ honors colleges excelling in key areas of educational quality.

"St. Norbert College is thrilled to be included in the Colleges of Distinction guidebook. Unlike other lists, this approach allows families to get a broader sense of schools that truly engage students and ensure exceptional outcomes. I would like to think we do that very well and I appreciate that we are being recognized for our commitment to students and their return on investment," said Thomas Kunkel, president of St. Norbert College.

In order to qualify, St. Norbert College was required to demonstrate excellence in four distinctions: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities and successful outcomes. Featured schools take a holistic approach to admissions, consistently excel in providing undergraduate education and have a truly national reputation.

"These schools are among the very best in North America. Each school goes above and beyond the four distinctions that really make an undergraduate education," reports Tyson Schritter, the Executive Editor of Colleges of Distinction™. "While each school designated as College of Distinction is unique, they are all a great place to get an education."

Offering college profiles and easy-to-use search tools, the Colleges of Distinction website includes tips from high school guidance counselors and essays from college students, presidents and other members of campus communities.
