b2ap3_thumbnail_WU-Spring.jpgWaynesburg University has been selected as one of “The 50 Most Beautiful Christian College & University Campuses in the World” by the editors of ChristianUniversitiesOnline.org.

The schools on the list were chosen from a global pool of Christian colleges and universities that were considered broadly evangelical in their theological outlook and were known to the editors of ChristianUniversitiesOnline.org.

Ranked at number 22, Waynesburg University’s historic campus spans 70 acres and is nestled in the foothills of southwestern Pennsylvania, with three adult centers located in the Pittsburgh region.

“Known for its close proximity to four city parks, Waynesburg University makes it easy for students to enjoy nature in the southwestern Pennsylvania foothills,” the ranking stated. “The University has managed to balance its exemplary historical edifices and unspoiled rural surroundings with modern facilities as well.”

According to the editors, the list was put together as an aid for prospective students looking for a Christian school where their quest for truth will be enhanced by truly beautiful surroundings.

“Many universities and colleges across the globe provide both high-quality education and a thorough devotion to Christian principles,” the ChristianUniversitiesOnline.org article stated. “However, some institutions associated with the teachings of Jesus excel not only academically and spiritually, but also aesthetically – boasting some of the loveliest looking campuses anywhere on Earth.”

In 2013, ChristianUniversitiesOnline.org named Waynesburg University one of the most beautiful Christian colleges in America. All of the schools included on the domestic list were members or affiliates of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.
