Clemson stays in US News' Top 25 National Public University list

Illinois State University has placed in the top 100 universities in the nation in recent years; placing 83 in the country this year.

The magazine each year evaluates schools based on up to 15 criteria, including class size, standardized test scores of incoming students and average graduation rate. "This is yet another great tribute to our faculty, staff, alumni and students on the great things happening here at Wesleyan". In New Jersey, TCNJ ranked 1st among public colleges and universities, and 2nd overall. The six-year graduation rate for baccalaureate students is 67 percent.

In addition to these No. 1 rankings, HPU is also recognized for its study overseas programs.

This marks the 34 edition of Best Colleges publication since the rankings began being recorded in 1983.

In August, Kentucky Wesleyan was recognized by Princeton Review as a "Best in the Southeast" school for the 14th consecutive year.

"The Misericordia community is grateful for the national recognition that comes with these annual collegiate rankings, " said Misericordia University President Thomas J. Botzman, Ph.D.




Harvard University took the No. 2 spot in the U.S News rankings, followed by the University of Chicago, Yale University, Columbia University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Massachusetts.

Brian Kelly, editor and chief content officer of U.S. News, said in a news release that graduation and retention rates are important indicators of how well a school supports its students both academically and financially.

One finding among Alabama schools is that Samford University in Birmingham ranks first among regional universities in the South in the "best colleges for veterans" category, while the University of Mobile ranks first for veterans among regional colleges in the South. And the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs is tied for sixth best in Top Public Schools of the West, up from ninth place in the 2017 rankings. This is the 11th year in a row for Northwestern to be in the top 10.

The Ivy League school has an enrollment of 5,400 students and charges them about $47,000 a year in tuition and fees - though it wasn't the most expensive university near the top of the list.

The University of Cincinnati has again risen in the ranks. National universities offer a full range of undergraduate majors plus master's and PhD programs and emphasize faculty research.
