    Once again earning its placement among the country's best higher education institutions, the University of Dallas recently received high marks of excellence.

    The school is in the 2019 edition of The Princeton Review's popular guidebook as one of "The Best 384 Colleges." That's Forbes magazine's annual listing of "America's Top Colleges," and Money magazine's "Best Colleges for Your Money."

    The Princeton Review considered UD among the best institutions at which to receive an undergraduate education and identified it as one of 129 "Best Western" regional institutions.

    Based on postgraduate success, student debt, student satisfaction, graduation rate and academic success, Forbes magazine rankings were released in mid-August.

    Money magazine, which evaluates America's Best Colleges by the quality of a school's education, affordability and student outcomes, also named the university among "more than 700 of the nation's best-performing colleges" in its 2018-2019 ranking.

    Since July, the university has been included on multiple "best college" lists, among these the Fiske Guide to Colleges, Colleges of Distinction and College Consensus, which named the university among the "Best Catholic Colleges of 2018" and (for the second consecutive year) among the "Best Colleges in Texas."

    "University of Dallas students are uniquely motivated to pursue a broad, liberal arts education, learning from the classics of Western civilization in the Catholic tradition, helping to prepare them to assume a wide variety of leadership roles in society," said Interim President John G. Plotts, Ed.D in a statement. "We are honored to receive such notable distinctions from each of these publications, recognizing us once again among the country's premier academic institutions."
