Crowley’s Ridge College is located in Paragould, Arkansas, in the United States. The college is a private, four year, coeducational Christian liberal arts college, providing studies appropriate for Bachelor and Associate Degrees. While the College is affiliated with the Churches of Christ, students of all religious backgrounds are welcome at Crowley’s Ridge College. The fall 2011 student population of 331 comprises both non-traditional and traditional residential and commuter students.
Crowley's Ridge College began in 1964. Its spiritual origins, if not its direct lineage, go back to two earlier institutions in the area, MONEA Christian College, in Rector, Arkansas, and Croft College, which was located in rural Greene County, Arkansas, both of which were defunct by the end of the 1930s.The school achieved a major milestone in 2000 when it was formally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and was included in membership in the North Central Association. In addition to three Associate Level Degrees, the college offers degrees at the baccalaureate level in Business Administration and Biblical Studies.
The scenic, wooded 150-acre (0.61 km2) campus is located atop the namesake geographic feature, Crowley's Ridge, one of the main terrain features of Eastern Arkansas. The pine tree covered campus has a lake at the center of campus and provides a beautiful natural setting for advanced studies. Eight buildings, containing 85,000 square feet (7,900 m2), are located on the college campus that is located on Highway 412 at the western city limits of Paragould, AR.
The CRC, nicknamed "Pioneers", compete in the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) (Division 1). Intercollegiate sports activities include, men's basketball, women's basketball, women's volleyball, men's baseball, and women's softball. Starting in fall 2011 CRC will be adding men's soccer.
