Wisconsin Lutheran College named a 2022-2023 College of Distinction

National college guide highlights engaged, hands-on education and student success at top schools  

MILWAUKEE, WI - Wisconsin Lutheran College (WLC) has been recognized for its honorable commitment to helping undergraduate students learn, grow, and succeed by Colleges of Distinction, a unique guide for college-bound students.

"When we focus all of our attention on how schools stack up against one another, we lose track of what really matters: the students themselves," said Wes Creel, founder of Colleges of Distinction. "Every student has individual needs and their own environment in which they're most likely to thrive. We want to extend our praise to the schools that prioritize and cater to students' goals."

Creel continued, "We're inspired by the ways in which Wisconsin Lutheran College immerses students in their fields, all while fostering a welcoming community that will support them through and beyond their college years."

Already honored as a 2022-2023 College of Distinction for its high-impact approach to education, WLC received additional recognition for its business, education, and nursing programs. WLC also was recognized as a Christian College of Distinction.
