Willamette University’s College of Liberal Arts was listed as the 26th best school in the West, according to the newest edition of Forbes’ “America’s Top Colleges.”

The colleges guide also ranked Willamette as the 100th best private school in the nation and the 133rd best college overall.

The rankings of the best 650 undergraduate institutions were largely based on return on investment — considering such factors as student satisfaction, debt, graduation rates, post-graduate successes and nationally competitive awards.
