Christendom College's ranking in the 2003 edition of US News & World Report's "Best Colleges" issue marks the fourth consecutive year that Christendom has been found to be one of the best 217 Liberal Arts colleges in the US.

According to the rankings, for the third consecutive year, Christendom College ranked first among all Catholic national liberal arts colleges in America in the category of "least debt incurred by its graduates."

The study revealed that the average debt incurred, amongst the 76% of Christendom graduates who acquired student loans, amounted to $8,000. The amount of debt that students accumulated from educational loans at national liberal arts colleges throughout the country reached as high as $24,448 at Wesleyan University in Connecticut.

In addition to being recognized in the category of "least debt," US News ranked Christendom first in its tier in the area of SAT scores amongst incoming freshmen (1110-1350), first in graduation rates, and third in freshmen retention.

Currently in its 26th academic year, Christendom continues to be recognized for its high standards of academic excellence, as well as its firm commitment to the Roman Catholic Church.
