Nebraska Wesleyan Ranked Among Nation's Top Liberal Arts Colleges
U.S. News & World Report has ranked Nebraska Wesleyan University among the top 150 liberal arts colleges in the country.
The magazine released its annual college rankings on Wednesday, September 12. Nebraska Wesleyan was listed in the “best national liberal arts colleges” category, which are those that emphasize undergraduate education and award at least half of their degrees in the liberal arts fields of study.
Nebraska Wesleyan was ranked 144th out of the country’s 248 liberal arts colleges and universities. NWU is the top ranked national liberal arts college in Nebraska.
U.S. News & World Report rankings are based on several measures including retention and graduation rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources, and alumni giving. A large percentage of the rankings is based on a peer assessment score given by other college and university presidents, provosts, and admissions deans who rate peer schools.
Two other publications have recognized Nebraska Wesleyan in recent weeks. Forbes Magazine has named Nebraska Wesleyan to its list of “America’s Top Colleges”. The Princeton Review chose Nebraska Wesleyan for its list of “Best in the Midwest.”
