The University of Dallas has been included in the “Fiske Guide to Colleges 2014,” making it the only Catholic college or university to receive such an honor in the southwestern U.S. This is the sixth consecutive year the university has been recognized by the Fiske Guide as a university that offers one of the best public or private academic experiences for an affordable price.

The guide includes 26 Catholic institutions among the 321 selected. It also includes three other Dallas/Fort Worth universities: Southern Methodist University, Texas Christian University and the University of Texas at Dallas. According to Fiske’s criteria, the selection of schools is based on “the quality of the academic offerings in relation to the cost of attendance.”
“The University of Dallas has a long tradition of offering one of the nation’s best liberal arts educations at an affordable cost,” said John Plotts, vice president of enrollment and student affairs. “It’s an honor to be included in the ‘Fiske Guide to Colleges.’”

Compiled by former New York Times Education Editor Edward B. Fiske, the “Fiske Guide to Colleges 2014” is a selective, subjective and systematic look at more than 300 colleges and universities in Canada, Great Britain and the United States. For more information, visit and
