Colleges included on the site are based on the opinions of guidance counselors, educators, and admissions personnel, according to the guide.

"Schools selected create well-rounded graduates and are among the very best in the country," according to Tyson Schritter, the executive editor of Colleges of Distinction. "While each school is one of a kind, they all share a common theme: they are all a great place to get an education."

In order to qualify, colleges are required to demonstrate excellence in the four distinctions: engaged students, teaching, vibrant communities, and successful outcomes, according to the guide.
