Wofford Recognized Among 328 'Most Interesting' Colleges

August 8, 2003

SPARTANBURG, SC – For a second year, Wofford College has been recognized as “one of the most interesting colleges in the country” by Kaplan Publishing in its “The Unofficial Unbiased Guide to the 328 Most Interesting Colleges,” which also dubs the college a “hidden treasure.”

As one of the “most interesting colleges” selected in the 2004 edition by authors Trent Anderson and Seppy Basili, two of the country’s top college admissions experts, a detailed two-page profile of Wofford is in the guide, including institutional data and a description of student life inside and outside the classroom. The guide is available in bookstores now.

“We’re delighted that Wofford College is being recognized as one of America’s most interesting colleges,” says Dr. Benjamin B. Dunlap, president of the college, “and pleased that, in the minds of those too remotely located to know us well, we’re considered a hidden treasure. Like America itself before it was ‘discovered’ by Columbus, Wofford is most certainly a treasure. Whether it is ‘hidden’ depends on the observer’s breadth of vision. I congratulate the editors on ‘The Unofficial Unbiased Guide’ for so expanding their horizons.”

The results in this year’s book were obtained through Kaplan’s 2004 National Survey of High School Guidance Counselors.
