Woods climbs in U.S. News rankings

TERRE HAUTE — Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College has moved up to No. 18 from No. 27 as one of the Best Regional Colleges in the Midwest by U.S. News & World Report in its 2014 Best Colleges Guidebook.

The rankings of more than 1,300 schools nationwide, are available today at www.usnews.com/colleges, and also will be on newsstands beginning Sept. 24.

“This new ranking position reflects our commitment to learning experiences that transform our students,”  Dottie King, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College president, said in a press release. “We continue to be intentional with our curriculum and programs to ensure we remain relevant in today’s competitive economic environment.”

According to the selection methodology, the regional colleges in the rankings focus almost entirely on the undergraduate experience and offer a broad range of programs in the liberal arts and in fields such as business and education. The 367 colleges in the Midwest category draw heavily from nearby states.

 Among the 74 top-ranked Midwest colleges, SMWC was recognized for having one of the highest percentages of classes with fewer than 20 students at 93 percent. Also, 44 percent of freshmen were in the top 25 percent of their high school classes. Additionally, the college touts a 62-percent graduation rate.

“With a low faculty-to-student ratio, diverse leadership opportunities, and many options for faculty-student research and collaboration, The Woods provides numerous paths for student exploration at home and abroad,” the college said in the press release.

“The college offers these educational opportunities to women and men through distance and graduate programs, while maintaining its commitment to women’s education.”
