The college ranking and review platform Niche has named Hollins University number one in the category “Best Colleges with No Application Fee in Virginia,” number three among the “Best Small Colleges in Virginia,” and ninth in the categories “Best Colleges in Virginia” and “Colleges with the Best Academics in Virginia.”
In its 2022 Best Colleges Rankings, Niche also cites Hollins as the seventh-best women’s college in America.
To create the college rankings, Niche combines data from sources such as the U.S. Department of Education with user input – reviews and ratings from current students, alumnae/i, and parents – to analyze factors such as academics, the campus environment, and value.
Luke Skurman, CEO and founder of Niche, adds, “Our team recognizes that the COVID-19 pandemic, especially as new variants such as the delta variant arise, will continue to have an outsize impact on the college admissions process this year. We wanted to make sure our 2022 rankings reflect the current reality and provide unique and comprehensive insights into top-notch institutions across the country.”
