Wilson earns high marks in 'Best Colleges' report

September 14, 2011

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Wilson College was named the fifth best value college in its category in U.S. News & World Report’s 2012 “America’s Best Colleges” issue, according to a news release from Wilson College.

The issue will be on newsstands Sept. 20.

Wilson ranked 11th overall for best college in the northern region. It held the 15th spot in that category last year, the news release stated.

The examination included 74 colleges in the region.

For the 11th straight year, Wilson has been honored as a best value college in the North and is named fifth in the category for regional colleges in the North. The category considers a school’s academic quality and the net cost of attendance for a student who receives the average level of need-based financial aid.

“It is an honor for Wilson to once again be named a ‘Great Schools, Great Prices’ college. In these difficult economic times, Wilson understands the importance of blending individualized attention with affordability,” Wilson President Barbara K. Mistick said in the news release.

Wilson College also received credit for having a high proportion of classes with fewer than 20 students.

Founded in 1869, Wilson College offers its students more than 40 fields of study, including majors, minors, concentrations and certificates, as well as two master’s degrees. Additional opportunities are available in physical education and dance; pre-professional programs in law, medicine, veterinary medicine and the health sciences; and a variety of special learning opportunities, internships and study-abroad programs.
