Notes of Distinction

By Jessica Lynch '13
Assumption College has introduced a new “Distinctions” page to the campus web site. Located under the “About” tab, the page lists distinctive characteristics of the college including its dedication to academics and commitment to student success.

The page is divided into four categories: “Who says?,” “Academic Excellence,” “Ideal Location,” and “Tradition of Success.”
  • “Who says?” includes rankings by U.S. News and World Report, Barron’s Best Buys in College Education, The Princeton Review, and Colleges of Distinction.
  • “Academic Excellence” contains the achievements of students and professors – including, the 13 students who have been awarded Fulbright Scholarships since 2001.
  • The “Ideal Location” section lists the advantages of being located in Worcester and the opportunities for employment available in second-largest city in New England.
  • Lastly, the “Tradition of Success” displays the success of Assumption’s graduates in finding valuable internships and obtaining jobs

According to Evan Lipp, Assumption’s vice president for enrollment management, “The web page helps us better communicate the distinctive attributes of Assumption College to potential students, parents and employees. It brings a lot of the third-party testimonials, facts and attributes into one place for people to see.”
