Newsweek Recognizes Andrews
Date: September 23, 2010
According to Newsweek, Andrews University is one of the 25 most diverse schools in America. In an effort to “address the real concerns of parents and prospective students,” Newsweek has released their first “College Rankings: Schools for Every Kind of Student.”
Out of 12 “best of” lists of universities, some of the other categories include: The 25 Most Desirable Schools, 25 Schools for the Service-Minded, The 25 Most Desirable Rural Schools, and rankings of small and large universities. Andrews University is the only Adventist institution on any of Newsweek’s lists.
On the same diversity list are top schools such as Stanford University, Columbia University, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, as well as smaller liberal arts colleges.
To evaluate the “25 Most Diverse Schools,” Newsweek compared the population of the school with the percent and distribution of ethnic groups, geographic origin of the students, economic status and gender. The number of students receiving Pell Grants was also taken into consideration.
Andrews University was recently named one of the “Best National Universities” for 2011 in U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges 2011” issue. Andrews was also recently ranked on Forbes.com’s 2010’s “America’s Best Colleges.”
On Newsweek’s Education website, each school is given a short review that includes basic information such as tuition, admission rate, school size, and a few facts about the school. More information, along with the complete review, is available at http://education.newsweek.com/choosing-a-school/college-rankings.html.
