Teaching” and is ranked 82nd among the country’s top 100 liberal

“Being recognized among the
country’s leading liberal arts colleges is always exciting because it affirms
the hard work our faculty and students do every day,” said Hendrix President
Bill Tsutsui. “Regardless of the ranking category or criteria, our priority at
Hendrix will always be inspiring students with a rigorous liberal arts
education in a caring and supportive community.”

Princeton Review’s 2016 Best Colleges "Best in the
Southeast" list and was also among 300 colleges and universities in the
