A Note on Comparisons

Calvin's results are compared with a group called Other Religious Four-Year Colleges, as distinguished from Catholic, Non-Sectarian, and Public Four-Year Colleges. Many in this Other Religious category are Protestant institutions with historical denominational ties, such as Alma, Carthage, Elmhurst, Valparaiso, and Wittenburg. In addition, CCCU schools with denominational affiliations are also included--schools such as Abilene Christian, Bethel (IN), Messiah, Point Loma Nazarene, and Seattle Pacific.
