Assumption College Moves Up in U.S. News & World Report Rankings

Assumption College is ranked at No. 34 in U.S. News & World Report’s “2012 Best Colleges” ratings of approximately 200 universities in the North that offer bachelor’s and master’s degrees, moving up two places over last year. The rankings were announced Sept. 13, 2011.
“The U.S. News & World Report ranking is just one tool students use to identify colleges and universities that can help them achieve their individual goals,” said Assumption College President Francesco Cesareo. “We strongly encourage students to visit Assumption so they can see for themselves the advantages of our college. Assumption has strong academic programs in the liberal arts, sciences, business, and professional studies; and our outstanding facilities make the college very attractive. In addition, Assumption’s highly regarded faculty are scholars and mentors who are engaged and committed to the success of our students.”

The U.S. News & World Report rankings for regional colleges and universities are based on several key measures of quality: peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources, and alumni giving. The Sept. 13 ranking follows last month’s announcement by The Princeton Review that Assumption is one of the best colleges in the Northeast.
