The Princeton Review names William Jewell to Best Colleges list


The Princeton Review has placed William Jewell College among the Best 385 Colleges in its 2020 edition. Jewell was also named to the Best Midwestern list.

Jewell was among 209 colleges named to the Best Value Colleges list, which is based on a combination of stellar academics, affordable cost and strong career prospects for graduates. According to the organization, “Students who attend these schools don’t have to mortgage their futures to pay for their degrees — and we believe they will graduate with great career prospects.” 

The Best Colleges and Best Midwestern lists are based on surveys of 140,000 students nationwide on topics related to their college, such as academics, administration, campus life, town life and extracurricular opportunities. Students respond to more than 80 questions on a five-point scale. 

Jewell students noted both an “amazing community” and “top-notch academics” in the survey. They also said the college aims to transform students into “critical thinkers” through a “rigorous set of programs that push you to the limits of your ability.” Other respondents said Jewell “provides a superb education that is “unmatched in the Midwest.”
