Manchester ranked among 15 best Midwest regional colleges

College Consensus (https://www.collegeconsensus.com), a new college ratings website that aggregates publisher rankings and student reviews, has published its ranking of the Best Regional Colleges in the Midwest for 2018 at https://www.collegeconsensus.com/rankings/best-regional-colleges-midwest/

Manchester University is No. 14 among the 50 Midwest regional colleges listed.

To identify the Best Regional Colleges-Midwest 2018, College Consensus combined the latest results from the most respected national college rankings with thousands of student reviews to produce a consensus score for each school.

According to College Consensus founder Jeremy Alder, "Like Rotten Tomatoes or Metacritic does for movies, College Consensus gathers the publisher rankings and student reviews from around the web and distills the results into simple, easy to understand scores so students can quickly and easily compare schools."

"The Midwest's best regional colleges," Managing Editor Carrie Sealey-Morris said in making the ranking announcement, "are the undergraduate institutions preparing the Midwest's professional and technical workforce." 

As Sealey-Morris' introduction to the ranking notes, "It's the 2-year and 4-year colleges that keep the economy humming, and that's especially true in the Midwest, with vast rural areas and industrialized manufacturing cities."

For the College Consensus ranking, regional colleges are defined as "the smaller public and private bachelor's and associate's degree colleges that don't get the glory, but make a difference in students' lives." Most do not have doctoral programs, but some do.

Manchester University, with campuses in North Manchester and Fort Wayne, Ind., offers more than 60 areas of academic study to 1,600 students in undergraduate programs, a Master of Science in Pharmacogenomics, a Master of Athletic Training and a four-year professional Doctor of Pharmacy.  Learn more about the private, northern Indiana school at www.manchester.edu.
