COLUMBUS, Miss. -- Once again, The W is maintaining its standing as one of the top 20 public Southern regional universities in rankings released today [Sept. 10] by U.S. News & World Report.
In the annual “Best Colleges” guide, the national publication develops its rankings based on quantitative data such as freshman retention, graduation rates and strength of faculty. It also considers qualitative factors such as surveys of peer institutions and high school counselors.
“The W long has been an institution focused on student learning and student success,” said W President Jim Borsig. “We are proud to continue this tradition and to build on it as we write the next chapter of our history.”
He added, “The W offers our students a personal learning environment and an outstanding faculty who mentor and provide a foundation for success. We’re especially proud that we provide access for many first-generation students in our state. That is the tradition The W was founded on, and that continues to be our mission today.”
