Mount Union Named One of America’s Best Colleges by U. S. News & World Report
September 04, 2008
Mount Union College has once again been named by U.S. News and World Report as one of America’s Best Colleges.
After 16 consecutive years of being ranked in the Top 15 in the Midwest among regional comprehensive or liberal arts colleges, the College was promoted to the “Best Liberal Arts Colleges” category in 2007. In 2008, Mount Union was once again recognized at this level.
“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 once again be recognized at this level of distinction.”
Mount Union’s appearance in the third tier among the best liberal arts colleges puts it in a class with other nationally-ranked institutions.
The top three colleges in the best liberal arts colleges category are Williams College, Amherst College and Swarthmore College. Other Ohio colleges in this category are Oberlin and Kenyon.
