THE MARQUETTE ADVANTAGE

It’s about shaping
moral character, too

U.S. News & World Report ranks Marquette at No. 85 among the top 100 national universities, a decided jump from last year’s ranking at No. 90. The Princeton Review chooses Marquette from more than 900 colleges and universities to  feature in its new  book Colleges with a Conscience: 81 Great Schools with Outstanding Community Involvement.

And now on news stands, the 2006 special edition of America’s Best Colleges produced by U.S. News commits three pages to Marquette under the banner headline “Learning to Serve.” It’s exciting when people outside of our university community start taking notice. Our alums talk about it, our parents count on it, our faculty personify it, and our students live it — a Catholic, Jesuit educational experience that is definitely different and that pairs academic rigor with real reflection.

Or as U.S. News printed, an educational tradition that “translates into granting students more than just academic degrees; it means, in the Jesuit tradition, no less than shaping the moral and spiritual  character of young men and women.”
