10. Calvin College
Grand Rapids, MI
Calvin College was founded in 1876 and is named after John Calvin, the 16th century Protestant Reformer.
The college is a four-year undergraduate liberal arts institution that’s also an educational institution of the Christian Reformed Church.
Nearly 4,000 students attend the school for a balanced lifestyle that incorporates both education and faith.
According to the Calvin College’s web site, their “classrooms embody a community of faith and learning extended across campus and beyond.”
NOTE: Princeton Review Rankings should be reviewed with a grain of salt. The Princeton Review surveys students and their answers determine how the school ranks. According to the Princeton Review, “each college is given a score (similar to a GPA) for its students’ answers to each multiple-choice question. These scores enable us to compare student opinion from college to college. They are the sole factors that determine which schools make it onto our 62 ranking lists.” There is no input from collegiate administrators or professors so these assessments only reflect the student body perspective of each school. With that, they also don’t reflect the opinions of the entire student body.
Would you consider attending one of the schools on this list?
