Saint Louis University celebrated its entrance back into U.S. News and World Report’s ranking of the top 100 national universities. The news magazine released its 2015 rankings on Tuesday, Sept. 9 and simultaneously welcomed SLU back into the upper echelon of its prestigious list.
Last year, SLU had fallen just shy of the cut and was given a position at 101 – as opposed to its more comfortable placing at 92 in 2013. This year, the university must be improving in some manner and accepts its 99th position alongside three other schools: University of Missouri, University of Nebraska—Lincoln, and University of New Hampshire.
“We are always pleased when the University receives recognition for our outstanding academic programs and successful students,” said Jay Goff, vice president of enrollment and retention management.
Jean Gilman, dean of admission, also commented on this achievement and what it could mean for SLU in the future.
“I think this latest recognition for our academic programs will be yet another factor that will help future students see the value of a SLU education,” said Gilman.
