Allegheny College Ranks Among Washington Monthly’s Top 40

Allegheny College has been named one of the top 40 best liberal arts colleges in the nation in Washington Monthly’s college rankings, released today. Also listed among the top 40 are Amherst, Haverford, Bryn Mawr and Swarthmore.

The Washington Monthly rankings are unique in that they recognize not only what colleges do for their students but what colleges are doing for the country. The rankings rate top liberal arts colleges in the nation based on three broad categories:
• Social mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students)
• Research (producing cutting-edge scholarship and Ph.D.s)
• Service (encouraging students to give something back to society)

This marks the seventh consecutive year Allegheny has been recognized among the best liberal arts colleges in the nation by Washington Monthly.

Allegheny also has been featured this year in the “Fiske Guide to Colleges 2020,” which includes the nation’s “best and most interesting” schools; “The Best 385 Colleges,” the 2020 edition of The Princeton Review’s flagship college guide; and “The Best Value Colleges: 200 Schools with Exceptional ROI for Your Tuition Investment,” published by The Princeton Review.
