For the Metro Wire

The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is again ranked as one of the top public universities in 12 states in the Midwest, according to the U.S. News and World Report.

The magazine’s 2019 rankings place UW-Stevens Point tied for 12th in the top tier of Midwestern comprehensive public universities. The university is recognized for high rates in graduation, a low student to faculty ratio and a solid reputation among peer institutions.

These rankings are a good tool for students who are beginning to look at colleges and universities but may not be that familiar with the UW-Stevens Point campus, Chancellor Bernie Patterson said. “If students are looking at the top-ranking universities in the Midwest, they should be looking at UW-Stevens Point.”
