Marietta College Ties for 6th in the Midwest!

DSCF1146The US News and World Report: America’s Best Colleges list is finally out, and Marietta College tied for 6th place in the Baccalaureate Colleges – Midwest Region.

While it did not beat out all other OAC schools like in the Forbes Poll (Ohio Northern University was second to Taylor University), it did beat out #33 Wilmington College.  No other OAC colleges were ranked.  Marietta was tied for 6th with Cedarville University and Huntington University.

Marietta was also included on the list of schools with International students (9% of campus population), economic diversity (26% of students obtain Pell grants), diversity (index score of .13), and retention (73.2% freshmen retention).

Once again, another ranking of colleges, another great day to be a Pioneer!
