Holy Cross Freshmen Ranked 7th Happiest in US

Monday, April 22, 2013

 

It's easy to smile for the camera when you're a freshman at Worcester's College of the Holy Cross.

If you're a freshman at the College of the Holy Cross, then chances are you're incredibly happy. So happy, in fact, that first year students at Worcester's well-known college are the 7th happiest in the nation, according to a CBS Moneywatch report citing US Department of Education freshman retention rates.

With a 98.1 percent first-year student retention rate, the College ranked #7 on the list of private U.S. colleges and universities with the highest percentage of freshmen who return as sophomores. A separate ranking was compiled from the US Department of Education's public colleges.

Holy Cross was not the only Massachusetts college to make the top 10. Harvard University ranked just one spot about Holy Cross at #6.

Princeton University took top honors at #1, followed by Harvey Mudd College at #2, Yale at #3, UPenn at #4, and University of Chicago at #5.

After Harvard and Holy Cross, the rest of the Top 10 were Stanford University at #8, Carleton College at #9, and the University of Notre Dame at #10. 

Other Massachusetts schools to make the Top 25: MIT came in at #14, Williams at #18, and Tufts at #19.
