US News names Cornell in top 100 national liberal arts colleges

Once again this year, Hendrix College is included in the 2018 U.S. News & World Report "Best National Liberal Arts Colleges" rankings.

The rankings, which were released September 12, show McDaniel coming in at 134th, according to the U.S. News & World Report website.

- Making up 15 percent of its students in 2016-17, F&M was recognized as a liberal arts school with one of the highest percentages of global students. This "enriched offering" gained recognition among university peers, including college presidents, chief academic officers and deans of admissions, who nominated institutions with stellar examples of research as well as learning communities, internships, service learning, study overseas, capstone projects, and writing in the disciplines.

- The college was listed in the "A+ Schools for B Students" category, a list of schools that have applications with test scores and class standings that put them in "non-A territory", according to U.S. News. "Those details can make the difference", said Senior Admissions and Financial Aid Director Steve McKellips. These colleges emphasize undergraduate education and award at least half of their degrees in the arts and sciences.

"We can be proud that Arkansas is home to the best national liberal arts college in the south central USA", added Tsutsui.
