Every year since 2002, U.S. News & World Report has asked college presidents and deans which colleges provide the best undergraduate research opportunities and senior capstone experiences.

Only two have made both lists every year: Wooster and Princeton.

Wooster is a College That Changes Lives

Colleges That Change Lives by Loren Pope book coverLoren Pope, founder of Colleges That Change Lives, called The College of Wooster "my original best-kept secret in higher education...I can testify that there is no better college in the country...Something important is said about the Wooster experience when more professors and administrators in the Great Lakes Colleges Association [which includes Oberlin, Kenyon, and Denison] send their children to Wooster than to any of the other twelve colleges in that very good consortium."
