Most, if not all colleges and universities claim to be growing and improving each and every year. New this, redesigned that. The higher education ports of the millennial generation have expectations to meet and standards to uphold, however it is always nice to receive some national validation of excellence.
Springfield College has moved up on the list of highest ranked colleges in the U.S.News & World Report’s latest edition of “Best Colleges.” The report was released on Sept. 9, 2014, and truly reflected Springfield College’s impeccable reputation.
In the 2015 report, Springfield College ranked 31st in the first tier category of Best Regional Universities – North, which is up six spots from last year. Springfield was competing with 138 other colleges in the first tier and 180 overall in the category.
The North category consists of institutions from the northern United States that provide a full range of undergraduate majors and masters programs.
“We are always pleased to be recognized for the quality education we offer our students,” said Springfield College Vice President for Academic Affairs Jean Wyld. “Since these ratings consider metrics such as the graduation rate, it is great to have our focus on student success recognized.”
