Princeton Review names Jewell a Best College


The Princeton Review named William Jewell College one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduates to earn their college degree. The education services company recommends Jewell among its top academic-ranked schools in its 2024 college guide, The Best 389 Colleges. Only 15% of America's four-year colleges and universities receive this distinction.

Of the 389 Best Colleges, including all public and private colleges and universities of all sizes, Jewell was also named to the 209 Best Value Colleges list based on more than 40 data points covering academics, costs, financial aid, debt, graduation rates, and alumni career and salary data. The Princeton Review cites:

The 209 schools that made our rankings for The Best Value Colleges all share three exceptional features:

  • stellar academics
  • affordable cost—either via a comparatively low sticker price or generous financial aid (or both!)
  • strong career prospects for graduates.


In addition, 630 colleges and universities were noted as the best in their region. Jewell was among the 150 Best Midwest Colleges for “academically outstanding and well worth consideration in your college search.”
