Cresson, Pa. – For the 13th consecutive year, Mount Aloysius College has been recognized as a “College of Distinction.” In addition, the College’s business, education, and nursing departments, as well as the career development offices, have all been recognized for the 2020-2021 academic year.

“We are thrilled with this honor and proud to continue our commitment to student success,” said Mount Aloysius College President John McKeegan. “This is driven by our entire faculty’s skill and dedication, as well as the personal support of our entire community. Our mission is ‘to respond to individual and community needs with quality programs of education in the tradition of the Religious Sisters of Mercy.’ That mission is as strong today as ever.”

A “College of Distinction” is a college or university that excels in student-focused education. Nominations for College of Distinction recognition are based on high school counselor recommendations and quantitative research.

Created in 2000, Colleges of Distinction helps students and parents navigate the often overwhelming process of finding the optimal college or university. The list of 2020-2021 Colleges of Distinction vary in institution size, cost, location, academic offerings, and much more, but they all meet or exceed standards in each of College of Distinction’s four overarching distinctions: student engagement, teaching, community, and outcomes.
