Goldey-Beacom College named ‘Hidden Gem’


Goldey-Beacom College (GBC) was selected as a 2024 Hidden Gem by College Raptor, a college planning platform that helps families discover college matches driven by AI algorithms.

GBC was selected for:

  1. Hidden Gems in the U.S.
  2. Hidden Gems in the Mid-East U.S.

This selection recognizes GBC as one of the best colleges in the nation based on a combination of factors, including retention rates, graduation rates, student-to-faculty ratio, endowment per student, selectivity, and other key metrics as reported via the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) for the most recently available enrollment year.

“With Goldey-Beacom’s recent uptick in strategic marketing over the last several years, it’s an honor to be selected as a “hidden gem”, although we are becoming not-so-hidden anymore,” said Dr. Colleen Perry Keith, GBC’s president.

“For students seeking the enriching experience of a smaller college with exceptional programs, institutions like GBC emerge as prime options, and we are honored to spotlight them with the recognition they genuinely deserve,” said William Staib, co-founder and CEO, College Raptor.
