Hendrix College found itself in the top 300 colleges and universities in the U.S., Canada, and Great Britain selected for the 2015 edition of the Fiske Guide to Colleges.
Compiled by former New York Times education editor Edward B. Fiske, the guide examines a broad range of subjects, including student body, academics, social life, financial aid, campus setting, housing, food and extracurricular activities.
Among the comments on Hendrix featured in the 2015 Fiske Guide are:
“People here are passionate, intelligent, and fun”
“Hendrix has a strong emphasis on international awareness”
“Doing well at Hendrix means keeping up with the workload … Thankfully, engaging professors are available to help students navigate the coursework”
“Sixty-five percent of classes have 19 or fewer students, so personal attention is the norm.
“At Hendrix, undergraduate research takes priority, especially within the sciences, and students get the chance to present original papers at regional and national symposia.”
“We are so pleased for Hendrix to be selected for this publication,” said Hendrix President Bill Tsutsui. “This recognition is wonderful affirmation of the hard work of our faculty and staff and the unique academic program and distinctive campus culture they’ve built at Hendrix.
“Prospective students and their families today have a myriad of resources available to assist them in making an informed decision on where to go to college,” he added. “I hope that the prospective students who read about Hendrix in this publication will visit campus and experience Hendrix firsthand, because there’s nothing like it.”
