Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Dakota Wesleyan University is ranked among America’s best regional colleges for the Midwest, according to the recently released U.S. News & World Report “Best Colleges 2014.”

The annual “America’s Best Colleges” study by U.S. News & World Report is a culmination of data taken from regional colleges, high school counselors and various sources to create a comprehensive look at what colleges offer and how they assist students on their road to success. Everything from class size to financial assistance to how competitive admission processes are, are taken into account.

“Dakota Wesleyan strives to teach students leadership, service and a commitment to the communities they share; we set standards in these areas in and out of the classroom,” said Amy Novak, DWU president. “The university has been educating future leaders since 1885 and the campus has grown in size both physically and in its enrollment. Others are noticing the quality of education DWU offers and we are committed to continuing to build on our academic excellence.”

DWU is ranked among regional colleges in the Midwest, which includes 12 states.

DWU is a private, liberal arts university associated with the Dakotas Conference of the United Methodist Church.  For more information about Dakota Wesleyan University, visit www.dwu.edu.
