U.S. News names Texas Wesleyan among top colleges for veterans
Texas Wesleyan has earned another top-tier ranking from U.S. News & World Report, this time for its commitment to helping military veterans ease the burden of applying, paying for and completing their college degrees.
In the inaugural Best Colleges for Veterans rankings, Texas Wesleyan was listed as the No. 11 school out of all the regional universities in the west. The honor comes just two months after the university was ranked in the No. 1 tier of regional universities in the west for the fourth consecutive year.
"It's a tremendous honor for Texas Wesleyan to continue to be recognized by U.S. News & World Report," said President Frederick G. Slabach. "With our inclusion in this inaugural ranking, we are setting a standard for our dedication to serving the men and women who so bravely serve our nation."
