U.S. News & World Report has again ranked Nazareth College in the top tier of colleges and universities in the category of Best Regional Universities-North in its 2014 edition of U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges. Nazareth ranked 27th (up from 33 last year) in the Best Regional Universities-North (guide ranks by region) which covers 11 states and the District of Columbia. Nazareth College also made the guide’s list for A+ Schools for B Students, where top quality institutions look for more than just grades on applications.
The 2014 edition of the U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges book is available online September 10.
“Nazareth College is proud to be included once again on the list of best regional universities in the north region by a widely respected publication like the U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges guide,” said Nazareth President Daan Braveman. “We are providing students with the highest quality experiences through our liberal arts core, professional programs, and fieldwork opportunities. Students graduate from Nazareth well prepared for successful careers and meaningful lives.”
The U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges package represents the most comprehensive look at how more than 1,400 accredited four-year schools compare on a set of 15 widely accepted indicators of excellence. Among the many factors weighed in determining the rankings, the key measures of quality are: peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources, alumni giving, and graduation rate performance (National Universities and Liberal Art Colleges).
Founded in 1924, Nazareth College is located on a close-knit, suburban campus in the dynamic, metropolitan region of Rochester, N.Y. The College offers challenging academic programs in the liberal arts and sciences and professional programs in health and human services, education, and management. Nazareth's strong cultures of service and community prepare students to be successful professionals and engaged citizens. The College enrolls approximately 2,000 undergraduate students and 1,000 graduate students.
