Wheeling Jesuit was named one of the Best Colleges in West Virginia by College Consensus – a unique new college review ranking system.

College Consensus placed WJU third in its Best Colleges in West Virginia for 2017-18. College Consensus averaged the latest results from the consensus-ranking-west-virginia-350x314.pngmost respected college ranking systems with thousands of real student review scores from around the web to produce a unique rating for each school.

“College Consensus, like many other ranking services, realizes that we offer a quality education at Wheeling Jesuit University. This recognition reinforces that we are providing students with a rigorous, Jesuit education that develops the whole person,” said Dr. Debra Townsley, president of Wheeling Jesuit.

The ranking service stated that WJU has earned a reputation as one of the most academically rigorous schools in the Ohio Valley and is ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the 50 best regional colleges in the South. The service places WJU ahead of West Liberty and WVU in its ranking.

“Jesuit education is renowned all over the world for its intellectual challenge, academic demands and graduate excellence, and Wheeling Jesuit University brings that heritage to West Virginia. In addition to a strong liberal arts core grounded in the classical humanities and sciences, and an even more-rigorous Honors Program, Wheeling Jesuit puts a strong emphasis on undergraduate research, with most seniors completing a capstone project that they present at the yearly Student Research and Scholarship Symposium,” College Consensus explained.

According to College Consensus, education has helped West Virginia re-invent itself so that the state is no longer dependent on coal mining to drive its economy. It stated that the Mountain State’s colleges and universities are working to prepare high school graduates and working adults for professional careers in the state.
