Mount Union College has once again been named by U.S. News and World Report as one of America's Best Colleges, only this time in a different category.
For the past 16 years, Mount Union has been ranked in the Top 15 in the Midwest among regional comprehensive or liberal arts colleges.
In 2007, the College was informed that Mount Union had been promoted to the 'Best Liberal Arts Colleges' category.
'This places Mount Union among the top 248 colleges and universities in the country in a category that is a rung above our previous one,' said Dr. Richard F. Giese, president of the College. 'We are pleased to be recognized at this new level of distinction.'
In the 'Best Liberal Arts Colleges' category, Mount Union is joined by other colleges including Westminster College and Grove City College in Pennsylvania, Alma College in Michigan, Simpson College, Wartburg College and Central College in Iowa, Millikin University and Monmouth College in Illinois, Roanoke College in Virginia and Whittier College in California.
The top three colleges in this category are Williams College, Amherst College and Swarthmore College. Other Ohio colleges in this category are Oberlin and Kenyon.
