3 Things to Give Thanks for This Thanksgiving

 

As we prepare to gather around the table this Thanksgiving with friends and family, feasting on mom’s homemade pumpkin roll and some delicious honey-glazed ham, we are reminded of all we have to give thanks for. At the University of Dallas, we have plenty to be thankful for, including these three achievements announced earlier this year:  

Record-Breaking Undergraduate Enrollment

In October, UD announced the largest-ever undergraduate enrollment in our university’s 60-year history, surpassing more than 1,400 students. “Even with this growth, however, we’ve continued to maintain or improve our academic student quality,” said Executive Vice President John Plotts.

‘Best of West’

In this year’s 2017 rankings of the nation’s best colleges by U.S. News & World Report, UD claimed No. 12 for best regional university in the West out of 124 institutions. This ranking places our university as the No. 1 regional university in North Texas. UD was also listed as the region’s eighth Best Value.

America’s Best Private College for Merit Aid

This summer, MONEY Magazine listed UD as the top private college for merit aid in its list of “50 Best Private Colleges for Merit Aid.” Our first place distinction means that UD provides more merit-based financial aid to students than any other private college in the country. Currently, UD awards some 49 percent of students with merit aid, typically seen as scholarships, which is more than double the national average.
