NMSU achieves national top tier university ranking

NMSU achieves national top tier university ranking

In the list, Stanford University held the top position, followed by the University of California, Los Angeles. "We are very proud of that status and find it to be one of our primary attractions for our new and transfer students". LSU remains the highest ranked public university in Louisiana.

Last year, SDSU ranked 146th overall, and the 74th best public university and has been steadily climbing the rankings for several years.

The Tickle College of Engineering's undergraduate program was ranked No. 34 among public universities and No. 61 in the country. The school also ranks high on another list it would probably rather avoid. This is the best overall ranking Cornell has had on the U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges list since 2011.

The rankings can bring a lot of attention to schools, but even top-rated ones like U. of C. typically urge potential students to look beyond the number.

Among national campuses, the Westwood school was ranked 21st, up from 24th past year, when crosstown USC bested it by one place.

Misericordia University has climbed 26 places in the rankings since 2007.

Furman also was listed in "A+ Schools for B Students" and the list of colleges that "Focus on Student Success" in the category of undergraduate research/creative projects.

"I am gratified that these national rankings recognize the value of an Aggie education".

"It is exciting to be recognized as one of the country's top universities by U.S.News & World Report", said Robert Jones, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost.

The list released Tuesday keeps U. of C. tied with Yale University for the No. 3 spot behind Princeton University at No. 1 and Harvard University at No. 2, but shuffles around Illinois' other top schools in the rankings.

UB also was ranked among the Best Colleges for Veterans, at No. 58, and among the Best Value Schools, at No. 108.

U.S. News and World Report uses a multitude of factors in making the rankings, including first-year student retention, graduation, admissions selectivity, alumni giving and graduation rate.

The University of OR is holding steady at No. 103 nationally in the U.S. News & World Report's latest annual college rankings, published Tuesday. The top schools on that list are names that almost everyone knows: Princeton first and Harvard second.
