Owensboro, Ky. (August 27, 2018) – Kentucky Wesleyan College has been ranked No. 15 in the nation in the Baccalaureate Colleges category of the 2018 Washington Monthly College Rankings. Wesleyan was also recently recognized as a “Best in the Southeast” for the 15th consecutive year by The Princeton Review.
“We are very pleased and honored to once again receive national recognition and to earn Best in the Southeast honors for the fifteenth consecutive year,” said President Barton D. Darrell. “The commitment of our outstanding faculty and staff, and the high quality of our student body continues to be revealed with recognitions like this.”
