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.​

Panda Bear instructor well on her way to earning college degree

​Daily Sun News

Working with the children who attend the Panda Bear Child Care center in Sunnyside is a passion for Catalina Bazaldua. She is currently working on her Associate of Arts degree in early childhood development thanks to a state scholarship program designed to educate child care workers.

Catalina Bazaldua is fulfilling an educational goal she once never thought possible.

A child care provider at Sunnyside’s Panda Bear Child Care Center for the past five years, Bazaldua is well on her way to earning her Associate of Arts in early childhood development, thanks to a little known state scholarship program designed especially for child care providers.

Bazaldua is the recipient of a Washington Scholarship for Child Care Professionals, a statewide program that provides money for higher education to licensed child care staff and family child care providers.

Bazaldua, a Yakima Valley Community College student, said her success in working towards her goal is due in large part to a notice her husband, Jorge, saw regarding the specialized scholarships.
