Reinhardt University continues to rise in rankings by outside organizations, including its latest ranking as the 10th best among all colleges and universities in Georgia.
The ranking, a composite from College Consensus based on thousands of student reviews and recent results from respected publishing ratings organizations, puts Reinhardt only behind three of Georgia’s 26 public institutions and six behind the state’s 36 private colleges and universities.
“Any time Reinhardt is recognized for excellence is a time for us to celebrate our continuing progress as we work to achieve our vision, which is to create a unique Reinhardt Experience where each student thrives,” said Reinhardt President Kina S. Mallard.
This fall, Reinhardt has already enrolled more than 1,500 students and expects to finish near 1,600 in total enrollment when its non-traditional enrollment is completed in October.
Reinhardt offers more than 40 undergraduate programs and five graduate degrees. The 135-year-old institution is located in the fastest growing county in Georgia, Cherokee County, and serves both traditional and non-traditional students at locations in Canton, Cartersville, Cumming, Jasper, Woodstock and its main campus in Waleska. The University serves traditional and non-traditional students pursuing a holistic education, and it is affiliated with the United Methodist Church.
