U.S. News & World Report Rankings Move Lewis University Further Up in Top 25
Published: September 12, 2017.
Lewis University moved up another spot to No. 23 in the U.S. News & World Report Midwest Regional Universities rankings this year.
An improved graduation rate, a more academically-talented freshman class and an increase in average alumni giving rate were factors that helped the ranking bump up another place from the previous year of rankings. Lewis University’s acceptance rate also decreased, noting that the university was more selective in the admission process.
“Our students are the real success story. Their experiences and accomplishments lead to great career and graduate school opportunities, which reflects so positively on Lewis,” said Ray Kennelly, senior vice president for Enrollment Management.
Also, Lewis University is once again in the Top 20 Best Colleges for Veterans Midwest Regional University rankings. It placed No. 19 on the list of top colleges and universities that assist military veterans and active-duty service members by offering an affordable education.
“Our Office for Veterans Affairs and Recruitment works with the Student Veterans of America Chapter to provide unparalleled support that extends beyond the G.I. Bill and Yellow Ribbon Program,” commented Dr. David Livingston, president of Lewis University. “These recognitions honor our dedication to supporting student success.”
