musicmajor's point is right on. Allow me to edify some. Trinity is a very Christian college w/ a very robust Christian community. The original question however is a bit different ..."Top schools" would connote "top" according to secular measures, lists, rankings, etc. And beyond Wheaton and maybe a few more, generally Christian colleges aren't included in those. It's oxymoronic for the alleged intellects (and the measures they value and therefore include in these rankings)(btw, there is virtually no evidence any of these ...class rank, test scores, Ph.D institutions of the faculty, etc. have anything to do with quality of education and experience. Those are purely academic measurements that academics value. Real life beyond the campus might and does suggest totally disparate measures, including spiritual development, much more overtly presented and pursued on Christian college campuses.)
But that can be a monumental pill to swallow for anyones who've not grasped or bought into the realization that vast many among campuses are sorely narrow, politicized,worldly places these days. Essentially because those who revere and ultimately pass Ph.D. faculty muster are extremely narrow in worldview. It's just a sad fact. But it's recognizing that sad fact that makes the fundamental, compelling case for parents and students consideration of genuinely Christian colleges in this search.
