For the fifth straight year, the U.S. News & World Report ranked Westmont in the top 100 best liberal arts colleges. “America’s Best Colleges, 2014 Edition” lists Westmont as 94th out of the nation’s 248 liberal arts colleges.
“The ranking reflects Westmont’s commitment to being one of the country’s most selective and academically challenging colleges in the country,” says President Gayle D. Beebe. “Small class sizes are just one measurement of how we strive to maintain an environment where faculty members are genuinely interested in our students’ well-being, academically, personally and spiritually.”
Only eight other liberal arts colleges in California appear in the top 100: Pomona (4th), Claremont McKenna (9th), Harvey Mudd (16th), Scripps (25th), Occidental (41st), Pitzer (35th) and Thomas Aquinas (61st) Colleges. Soka University of America, which was reclassified in 2010, ranked 41st.
Westmont is just one of two liberal arts colleges among the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) in the top 100, and the only one in California to be listed in the first tier. Read More
