The latest college survey from US News & World Report shows that Williams Baptist University ranks well among institutions in Arkansas. Of the 22 colleges and universities ranked in The Natural State, WBU comes in at number two in the Best Value category, and number four overall.
US News released its 2019 Best Colleges edition last week.
Colleges and universities across the nation are ranked in several different categories, based on their size and specialties. The magazine then compiles a list of institutions in each of the states, listing them in order of their respective rankings on the US News website.
“With so many fine schools in this state, we are truly honored to be ranked this highly by US News,” said WBU President Dr. Stan Norman. “Williams wants to be known around Arkansas and beyond as a preeminent Christian university, so this is a gratifying position in the rankings.”
Williams climbed overall in the US News rankings this year, rising from 35th to 27th among liberal arts colleges and universities in the South. WBU is ranked 22nd for Best Value among the Southern schools.
WBU is a private, Christian university in Walnut Ridge.
