Assumption College in Top 40 of U.S. News & World Report Rankings

Assumption College is ranked at No. 38 in U.S. News & World Report’s "2013 Best Colleges" ratings of approximately 200 universities in the north that offer bachelor's and master's degrees.

"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 College's highly regarded faculty members are scholars and mentors who are engaged and committed to the success of our students. Our strong academic programs in the liberal arts, sciences, business, and professional studies, and our outstanding facilities make the College very attractive."

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. Today’s ranking follows last month’s announcement by The Princeton Review that Assumption is one of the best colleges in the northeast.

The Assumption College curriculum enables students to gain a depth and breadth of knowledge that lead to professional success and personal fulfillment. Students become engaged participants in Assumption’s classic liberal arts education – exploring new ideas, making connections across disciplines, and pushing themselves to achieve more than they ever thought possible. To prepare for the workforce, students learn cutting-edge theory and best practices, and develop excellent communication and critical-analysis skills.
