As an alum (Class of 1969) W&J is still a superior small college, with the highest ratio of teaching doctorates. They have a very strong pre-law and pre-med program. This is a school that atracts those of us in need of small college atmosphere and assistance from professors.

Washinton suffered from a delining economy during the waning of the steel and fabriation industries. Much retail business moved out to the suburbs.

Wash, Pa. is experiencing an economic re-birth due to the oil and gas boom and will recover I suggest.

As to this particular incident, it never would have happened in my day.This is the result of making allowanes for "special" people who do not fear retribution for even the most serious crimes. This has to (and will) change.

I just looked to see if W&J has the same reputation as they did when my daughter was considering it...sure enough...it’s still a great school.

“The college has a focus on preparing students for graduate school and professional programs. Across all disciplines, 85% to 90% of students who apply to such programs receive offers of admission. Among students who apply to medical school or related health graduate programs, 90% of students gain admission. Approximately 11% of all current W&J alumni are physicians and engineers, making the college third in the nation per capita for producing doctors and scientific researchers. Among students who apply to law school, approximately 90% of students gain admission.”

Also, I went to a few fraternity parties there around 1962-63 when I was in nursing school in Pittsbugh. They were Phi Delts. One guy is now a retired dentist, and the other is a lawyer.
