For the first time in its history, Westminster College was included in the Kaplan/Newsweek "America's Hottest Colleges" 2006 Edition, as one of the "most interesting schools" in America. Westminster was chosen along with 366 other schools to be featured in this edition of the guide, published by Newsweek.
The Kaplan Guide to America's 367 Most Interesting Schools is an alphabetical list of some of the best colleges and universities in America. They are deemed "interesting" based on their academic strengths and student body, as well as any specialty programs that they have to offer.
Westminster College President Michael Bassis remarked, "I am pleased that Westminster was included in this prestigious list of colleges. We work very hard to create a challenging and supportive learning environment for our students, and it is always exciting when outside organizations recognize us for that achievement."
Westminster was also recently recognized by the Princeton Review as one of the 122 Best Colleges in the West, based on student opinion data gathered from colleges across the nation. Robert Franek, Publisher and Editorial Director of The Princeton Review, said, "We believe these schools uphold the standards of our Best Western College distinction and provide students with a wide breadth of excellent schools to consider."
