Virginia Wesleyan Featured Among Princeton Review's Best Colleges for 2020
Virginia Wesleyan University is one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduates to earn their college degree, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company selected VWU for inclusion in the 2020 edition of its annual college guide, The Best 385 Colleges, and also features the University in the Southeastern category of its 2020 Best Colleges: Region by Region.

Only about 13 percent of America's 3,000 four-year colleges are profiled in The Best 385 Colleges book. Colleges are chosen based on data collected annually from administrators at hundreds of colleges about their institutions' academic offerings. The Princeton Review also considers data it gathers from its surveys of college students who rate and report on various aspects of their campus and community experiences for this project. More
