Washington Monthly Features Colleges Recommended in Newman Guide

studentsWashington Monthly recently released its rankings of four-year colleges and universities across the nation. This year’s 2014 college guide included many colleges and universities recommend in The Newman Guide.

The University of Dallas (UD), in Irving, Tex., ranked high in the “Master’s Universities” category. Also included in the list were DeSales University, Franciscan University of Steubenville, Mount St. Mary’s University, University of Mary, University of St. Thomas in Houston, and Walsh University. DeSales, Franciscan, Mount St. Mary’s, UD, and Walsh were additionally listed among the “Best Bang for the Buck” schools.

Additionally, the “Liberal Arts Colleges” category showcased AveMaria University and Thomas Aquinas College (TAC). TAC and UD were both found among the “Affordable Elite Colleges” list.

Finally, the “National Colleges” category featured The Catholic University of America, and the “Baccalaureate Colleges” group included Belmont Abbey College and Benedictine College.

The rankings, according to the Washington Monthly website, are based on each institutions’ “contribution to the public good” determined by three factors: social mobility, research, and service. They reportedly respond to the question “What are colleges doing for the country” by focusing on the impact the institutions have on society as a whole.

These colleges and many others are recommended in The Newman Guide for their strong Catholic identity.
