Waynesburg’s Criminal Justice and Nursing Programs were also identified as a “Best Value.”

“We are proud to be consistently recognized on a national level as best value school,” said President Douglas G. Lee. “It is a priority of ours to ensure an affordable Christian higher education is possible for our students in an increasingly competitive market.”

The ranking, published by USA Today, places Waynesburg 155th out of the more than 1,300 schools on the list. The University also ranked in the top 10 percent of schools in Pennsylvania for value.

Both Waynesburg’s Criminal Justice and Nursing Programs ranked in the top 5 percent nationwide.

College Factual ranks schools for best value by estimating the actual average cost for an undergraduate degree, using the quality results from the best colleges ranking and personalized factors, such as location, cost and financial aid.

Recently, Waynesburg University was named to MONEY Magazine’s 2017-2018 “Best Colleges For Your Money” list. Additionally, 98 percent of 2015 graduates have been reported working full time or studying in their chosen field within one year of graduation.

Founded in 1849 by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Waynesburg University is located on a traditional campus in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania, with three additional sites located in the Pittsburgh region. The University is one of only 21 Bonner Scholar schools in the country, offering local, regional and international opportunities to touch the lives of others through service.

Waynesburg University was recently named a national College of Distinction for the second consecutive year in recognition of its continued dedication to high-impact educational practices.

b2ap3_thumbnail_9-20-COD-PA.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_9-20-COD-1718.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_9-20-COD-Christian.jpg“We are honored to name Waynesburg University as a 2017-2018 College of Distinction for its continued commitment to student success,” said Tyson Schritter, chief operating officer for Colleges of Distinction. “Colleges of Distinction applauds Waynesburg University for pushing the envelope with its up-to-date curriculum, enriching the college experience with High-Impact Educational Practices, and providing every student with an education that stretches far beyond what’s typically required from an academic major.”

Institutions that are named a College of Distinction must demonstrate results in the Four Distinctions, which include engaged students, great teaching, vibrant community and successful outcomes.

The assessment process also includes a review of each institution’s freshman experience, as well as its general education program, strategic plan and alumni success, satisfaction measures and more.

“Colleges of Distinction is much more than an annual ranking of colleges and universities. Our goal is to select the best schools that are 100 percent focused on the student experience, and producing the most well-rounded graduates that are prepared for a global society and economy,” said Schritter. “Becoming a College of Distinction, like Waynesburg University, is proof that institutions we select are fully invested in their students’ success, beginning on day one, and continuing through the rest of their lives.”

Waynesburg was also named a Christian College of Distinction and a Pennsylvania College of Distinction.
