Lycoming College rose 39 spots to take No. 61 in the Washington Monthly 2020 Liberal Arts Colleges Ranking. The College is in good company with liberal arts colleges Amherst, Wesleyan, and Berea, topping this year’s liberal arts rankings. The announcement comes on the heels of the College’s inclusion in the Princeton Review’s “Best 386 Colleges.”
DC-area publication Washington Monthly releases college rankings every fall, differentiating itself from other popular rankings by evaluating colleges based on “how well they serve the country as a whole — by recruiting and graduating non-wealthy students, encouraging student activism, and producing research and technologies that create high-paying jobs and address threats like climate change.”
“The significant rise in our Washington Monthly rankings this year recognizes our ongoing success in educating high-performing students from low-income families,” said Kent Trachte, president of Lycoming College. “Our transformational curriculum has attracted students from across the country and around the world who want to integrate experiential learning and service learning with a classic liberal arts and sciences education. We will continue to innovate to ensure that our students will graduate prepared to pursue lives and careers of meaning.
