William Jewell College has been named a “Best Bets” college in a new guidebook, The Financial Aid Handbook: Getting the Education You Want for the Price You Can Afford, published by Career Press.

Authors Carol Stack and Ruth Vedvik have compiled a list of 60 selective U.S. colleges where average student loan burdens don’t exceed $8,000 per year and where average grants exceed average loans. “Every single school we list is a wonderful place to get an education,” Stack and Vedvik say.

The profile of William Jewell notes the College’s Oxbridge Honors Program employing British tutorial-style instruction and a year of study at Oxford or Cambridge. The listing also notes the personal attention Jewell students receive and the College’s four-year graduation guarantee. “William Jewell is a wonderful college with a series of academic experiences that rely on an intimate environment to be successful,” the authors note in the individual college profile section.

Stack and Vedvik are both veteran college admission officers and have worked at a national college enrollment consulting firm that works with admission and financial aid offices across the country. Together, they have more than 70 years of experience in the college admission process.

William Jewell College is committed to bringing together talented students and gifted faculty mentors within a vibrant community sparked by a rigorous and intentional liberal arts curriculum. A full range of personal and professional development experiences are presented by the selective national liberal arts college’s location within the Kansas City metroplex of more than two million.
