Rugg's recommends NWC programs
Monday, January 28, 2013
Twenty of Northwestern College’s academic programs are listed in the 2013 edition of Rugg’s Recommendations on the Colleges, a national guidebook that recommends specific college departments to prospective students.
Written by Frederick Rugg, a Brown University graduate who directed secondary college counseling programs for 20 years and conducted college seminars around the country for 23 years, the book includes programs at 1,130 four-year colleges he has identified as providing a high-quality education. The typical school has nine departments listed.
Rugg’s listings rely heavily on recommendations from college students. Suggestions are also received from high school counselors, parents and college personnel.
