WalletHub Best Colleges badgeThe personal-finance website WalletHub has named Thomas Aquinas College No. 25 on its 2018 rankings of the 112 Best Colleges in the United States — the only Catholic school to make the list. The site also rates the College as No.1 for “faculty resources,” No. 5 in the West, and No. 9 for “career outcomes.”

To arrive at their findings, WalletHub’s analysts considered “26 key measures to determine where prospective students can expect to receive a top-notch education at the lowest price points.” Among these criteria are student selectivity, tuition costs, student-faculty ratio, and post-graduation median salary.

“We are encouraged that WalletHub, like Forbes, Kiplinger, and other personal-finance guides, recognize that our academic program is a great value, one that will prepare graduates for any professional endeavor,” says Admissions Director Jon Daly. “Taken with our favorable reviews from the Cardinal Newman Society, the National Catholic Register, U.S. News, and The Princeton Review, we see these findings as further evidence of both the virtue and the versatility of a faithfully Catholic liberal education.”
