Latest university rankings unveiled, PNW schools well represented

​Yakima Herald Republic

The national magazine U.S. News & World Report unveiled the latest installment of its annual (and popular) university rankings today.

With regards to Pacific Northwest schools, the University of Washington ranked 48th among national universities. Washington State University, meanwhile, ranked 138th. The top-ranked school in the U.S. was Princeton University — no surprise it’s from the Ivy League.

When ranked among only national public universities, UW ranked 14th. The top-ranked public university was the University of California at Berkeley.

The 2015 rankings were split into several categories, and a few other Washington institutions made an appearance. Among national liberal arts colleges, Walla Walla’s Whitman College placed 37th. Among the West’s regional universities, Gonzaga placed third.

Central Washington University is the closest institution to the Yakima Valley making an appearance on some of the lists. The school ranked 51st among regional universities in the West. If you want to dive in deeper, CWU ranked 13th among the public regional universities of the West.

If you want to know how your alma mater placed or if I missed some schools of interest (there are too many to name, so yes I likely missed several) the 2015 rankings are available to the public.​

Words to Live By – A Group of Yakima Writers Preserves Yakima’s Literary Tradition

​Yakima Magazine

A group of Valley writers is gamely trying to preserve the rich literary tradition in Yakima after the loss of the nonprofit Allied Arts organization last year. But that might prove to be easier than some people think.

Yakima’s been called home by several famous writers — internationally renowned authors Beverly Cleary and Raymond Carver each have ties to Yakima, and author (and Supreme Court Justice) William O. Douglas graduated from Yakima High School. Two independent presses also call Yakima home: Blue Begonia and Cave Moon.

Transplants to our area have been surprised at how lively the literary scene is here. Take Robert Rife, for example. After moving to Yakima eight years ago, the music director for Yakima Covenant Church found out that Yakima was a great place for people who love to read and write. “This is very much a writer’s mecca,” he wrote in an email. “It has been a serendipitous discovery and a truly enjoyable one.” Rife was inspired enough to start an open-mic reading at the Yakima Makers’ Space over the summer called The Inspired Word Cafe.
