(Walnut Ridge, Ark.) – Williams Baptist College continues to edge its way up the rankings of US News & World Report. The magazine issued its annual college rankings this week, and Williams is again listed in the top tier of liberal arts colleges in the South.

WBC climbed three notches on the list since last year and is now ranked 55th. Williams has now been in the magazine’s top tier for three straight years.

“The US News ranking is a strong affirmation of what our students already know, which is that Williams provides a great education,” said WBC President Dr. Tom Jones. “It is great to see the college recognized on the national stage like this, and we appreciate the hard work of many people who have made Williams what it is.”
