Christopher Newport was also ranked in the top 10 public schools (#9) for Making an Impact. This ranking, also based on student responses, examines community service opportunities, student government, sustainability efforts, and on-campus student engagement.

The ranking supports the University’s ongoing commitment to preparing students for success after graduation, as Internships and Service are two of Christopher Newport’s Four Pillars. The Four Pillars are high-impact practices that lead to stronger student engagement as well as post-graduation success.

Meanwhile, the University’s Center for Community Engagement offers students a multitude of ways to connect and serve in the local community. Students who want to have a meaningful service experience and make an impactful contribution can do so through programs such as Bonner Service Scholars or Ferguson Fellowships.

The Princeton Review based its Best Value Colleges Ranking 2023 on an analysis of more than 40 data points that cover academics, affordability, and career outcomes of graduates. The rankings are released annually to help students identify the best and most affordable colleges.
