Our student debt nonetheless remains a problem. Here’s a recent article about that in the Chicago Tribune: http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2013-09-10/news/ct-talk-college-rankings-20130910_1_student-debt-best-value-rankings.

    It’s good news that we are moving up in US News and World Report rankings, as parents and prospective students look at those ratings. Academics, of course, have a more nuanced view of those ratings, but the move to give less weight to the “selectivity” of the incoming class (which is, of course, highly correlated with parental SES) should help schools that try to be a stepping stone up the ladder for students who are not born at the top of the ladder. As a Jesuit school, I assume that includes us!
