UMW named America’s ‘most underrated college’

by | Dec 16, 2019 | Business News

The University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg has been named the “Most Underrated College” in America.

Great Value Colleges ranked UMW no. 1 on its recently published list of the country’s most underrated colleges. Here is what the publication had to say about UMW:

Though University of Mary Washington doesn’t make the top 50 of any of the general best college lists, it has an impressive statistic that many institutions on those lists can’t hope to match: an 87% four year graduation rate, according to College Transitions. The faculty at the college are some of the brightest in the country. In fact, eight University of Mary Washington faculty members have even won Fulbright Awards, and 86% of faculty members have a doctorate or an equivalent level of degree. And if that weren’t good enough, then the college also gives out $41 million in financial assistance every year.

Congrats to UMW!
