The 2007 edition of U.S. News and World Report's "America's Best Colleges" released today contains particularly good rankings for two Arkansas liberal arts colleges.
Also, Hendrix College improved its position in the "Best Liberal Arts Colleges" category, moving up from 73rd to 69th, its best ranking ever. Hendrix is the only Arkansas liberal arts college to appear in the top tier, which includes the top 104 colleges in the category.
UPDATE: The University of the Ozarks in Clarksville is ranked first in the “Great Schools, Great Prices” category among 105 universities in the South that are considered "Comprehensive Colleges (Bachelor’s)." It is the second time in the past four years that the university has been ranked first in the best value category.
