Once again, Xavier is among the country’s best universities, according to U.S. News & World Report. Only this time, the University is perched a little higher up the ladder.
The magazine’s “Best Colleges” issue ranks Xavier as the third best university in the Midwest—trailing only Valparaiso and Creighton universities—up from seventh place, where it’s been for the last three years.
Adding to that consistency, this year it also ranks as the 14th best economic value among Midwest universities in the magazine’s “Great Schools at Great Prices” article.
The results, says Xavier President Michael J. Graham, S.J., confirm the University’s ongoing efforts to enhance the overall quality of the institution. “The results are very satisfying to all of us,” he says.
