Monday, November 27th, 2006

Louisiana College has once again been named in both the 2006-2007 “America’s 100 Best College Buys” and “America’s Best Christian Colleges.” To be considered as a “Best Buy” an institution must:

  • be an accredited, four-year institution offering bachelor degrees,
  • offer full residential facilities including residence halls and dining services,
  • have had an entering freshmen class in the fall of 2005 with a high school GPA and/or SAT/ACT score equal to or above the national average for entering college freshmen,
  • have and out-of-state cost of attendance in 2006-2007 for three quarters or two semesters below the national average cost of attendance or not exceeding the national average cost by more than ten percent.

Between April 3rd and July 31, 2006, Institutional Research & Evaluation, Inc. (an independent research and consulting organization) conducted this survey. The survey form was submitted to the offices of directors of admissions of 1,473 accredited U.S. colleges and universities offering four-year undergraduate degree programs, of those institutions surveyed 1,204 responded. Louisiana College along with Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge were the only two institutions named for the state of Louisiana.

To be considered for inclusion in “America’s Best Christian Colleges,” schools must:

  • be an accredited, four-year institution offering bachelor degrees,
  • offer full residential facilities including residence halls and dining services,
  • have had an entering freshman class in the fall of 2005 with a high school GPA and/or SAT/ACT score equal to or above the national average for all freshmen entering Christian institutions of higher education,
  • be affiliated with a recognized Christian denomination.

Out of the 1,473 four-year colleges and universities surveyed, 1,204 responded of which 503 were Christian institutions of higher education. Louisiana College along with Loyola University in New Orleans were the only two institutions named for the state of Louisiana.

“To be chosen as one of only a handful of colleges and universities across the country to be listed in these two prestigious publications is a testament to the quality of Louisiana College’s educational experience,” said Dr. Joe Aguillard, President of Louisiana College.
