Lyon College in Batesville was ranked 23rd in the “Great Schools, Great Prices” category for national liberal arts colleges. It was the only liberal arts college in Arkansas on the list, and one of only four in the South.

Also, Hendrix College improved its position in the "Best Liberal Arts Colleges" category, moving up from 73rd to 69th, its best ranking ever. Hendrix is the only Arkansas liberal arts college to appear in the top tier, which includes the top 104 colleges in the category.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
