Zippia says two local schools are among best small colleges in NC


June 28. Zippia, an online career planning resource, has named Cabarrus College of Health Sciences in Concord the No. 1 “Best Small College” in North Carolina. Ten schools made the list, including Davidson College which came in third.

Data from the National Center for Education Statistics and College Scorecard data were used in creating the list. Some of the data used included career earnings after six and 10 years; ratio of people working to not working after 10 years; admissions and graduation rates; and average cost of attendance.

Zippia said this about Cabarrus: “Cabarrus College graduates earn the second-highest salaries in the state for all small colleges – even a decade after graduation…cost is the third lowest, too. Meaning you get a big bang for your buck. A bonus: It’s a great place for women to study, as about 9 in 10 students are female.”

Zippia said this about Davidson: “Most people in the state know Davidson as being a top-notch basketball program. But this small, private liberal arts college outside of Charlotte isn’t just a great place for hoops. Davidson’s graduation rate of 93 percent is by far the highest in North Carolina, which is certainly something to brag about.”
