NEW WILMINGTON, PA – Westminster College continues to be recognized as one of the nation’s best, earning a spot among the top 100 “Best Liberal Arts Colleges” in Washington Monthly’s 2018 College Guide and Rankings.
Westminster also ranked #13 out of 228 colleges in the graduation rate performance category, as well as being named a “Best Bang for the Buck College” in the Northern region for helping non-wealthy students attain marketable degrees at affordable prices.
Washington Monthly rates colleges based on “what they are doing for the country” rather than wealth, fame and exclusivity. Washington Monthly examines social mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), research (producing cutting-edge scholarship and Ph.D.s) and service (encouraging students to give something back to their country).
“Washington Monthly’s recognition reflects our deep commitment to offering an outstanding and affordable education to each and every one of our students,” said Westminster College President Dr. Kathy Brittain Richardson.
Washington Monthly has been releasing its annual College Guide and Rankings since 2005.
