GALESBURG -- Knox College is one of the nation's "Great Schools at Great Prices," according to the newly released rankings from U.S. News
& World Report. Knox is ranked 38th among national liberal arts colleges in the category, which is also referred to as "Best Values"
and recognizes schools with top reputations for academic excellence and affordability. Other colleges in the category include Amherst,
Williams, Grinnell, Macalester, and Carleton.
"Knox is the only liberal arts college in Illinois in this very selective ranking of colleges," said Paul Steenis, dean of admission and vice president for enrollment. In the overall U.S. News rankings for 2013-2014, Knox is 82nd among more than 300 national liberal arts colleges.
Earlier this year, Knox was ranked 12th among the nation's Best Liberal Arts Colleges by Washington Monthly magazine. The magazine's
service-oriented rankings showcase the college as among the nation's best for its "contribution to the public good" through research,
access, and community service. Knox also was selected for The Princeton Review's 2014 edition of its annual guidebook The Best 378
Colleges, which cites "outstanding academics" as the primary factor for inclusion in the guide.
