The Wall Street Journal and Times Higher Education University Rankings is an annual assessment of colleges and universities that puts student success and learning at its heart in an effort to measure institutions’ “educational impact.”

Their 2018 rankings of 1054 institutions place Oglethorpe University in the top 44% of U.S. colleges and universities, based on more than 200,000 surveys from current students across the country.

Oglethorpe is ranked in the top eight institutions in Georgia, beating out Georgia State and Kennesaw State, scoring exceptionally well in Environment and as an “inspiring” campus.

According to WSJ/THE, the rankings aim to address the questions that matter most when choosing a college:

• Does the college have sufficient resources to teach me properly, and have a good academic reputation?
• Will I be engaged and challenged by my teacher and classmates?
• What type of campus community is there?
• How likely am I to graduate, pay off my loans and get a good job?
