Princeton Review names Jewell a top college; No. 9 in country for Town-Gown


The Princeton Review named William Jewell College one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduates to earn their college degree. The education services company recommends William Jewell in its 2023 college guide, The Best 388 Colleges.

Of the 388 Best Colleges, including all public and private colleges and universities of all sizes, William Jewell was ranked No. 9 in the country for Great Town-Gown Relations. This honor is based on surveys of 160,000 college students nationwide, asking how they rate the surrounding area where their school is located and how well they get along with members of the Liberty and Kansas City communities. Only 25 colleges and universities nationwide are selected then ranked for this honor. This is the third consecutive year Jewell has made the top 25 list.

Jewell was also named to the 200 Best Value Colleges based on academics, costs, financial aid, debt, graduation rates, and alumni career and salary data; and to the Best Midwestern Colleges list for “academically outstanding and well worth consideration in your college search.”
