Fiske Guide Recognizes UD for 8th Consecutive Year, Praises Rome Program

 

The University of Dallas has been included, once again, in the Fiske Guide to Colleges 2016, making it the only Catholic college or university to receive such an honor in Texas or the southwest. This is the eighth consecutive year the university has been recognized by the Fiske Guide for being one of the nations best and most interesting universities.

"The University of Dallas has long been recognized for offering a thorough education in the classics of Western Civilization," said John Plotts, senior vice president for enrollment and student services. "Its an honor to be included in the Fiske Guide to Colleges."

The University of Dallas is hailed by Fiske as appealing to those students who pride themselves on being the philosopher kings of the 21st century, but whose roots go back to the Roman thinkers of an earlier era. Also highlighted were the university's semester-long study abroad Rome Program and small class sizes.

The guide includes 26 Catholic institutions among the 322 selected. It also includes three other Dallas/Fort Worth universities: Southern Methodist University, Texas Christian University and the University of Texas at Dallas. According to Fiske's criteria, the selection of schools is based on the quality of the academic offerings in relation to the cost of attendance.

Compiled by former New York Times Education Editor Edward B. Fiske, the Fiske Guide to Colleges 2016 is a selective, subjective and systematic look at more than 300 colleges and universities in Canada, Great Britain and the United States.
