Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education Ranks Assumption Among Top Colleges in the Nation

Assumption College has once again been recognized among the top colleges and universities in the nation – and in the Northeast region –  by The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education (WSJ/THE) College Rankings for 2019. The ranking assesses data such as student success and learning when rating institutions of higher learning.

According to The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education, when ranking colleges and universities, it reviews 15 criteria in four key areas (resources, engagement, outcomes and environment) that students consider when choosing a college. This year, 20 percent of the WSJ/THE College Ranking was based on results of the annual THE U.S. Student Survey, which, according to THE, used 12 core questions to “capture the voices of 100,000 current U.S. students across all ranked colleges.”

Last month, Assumption College was ranked among the top colleges in the country by Forbes as one of America’s Top Colleges 2018, named a 2018-2019 Colleges of Distinction, and one of the Best 384 Colleges in the nation by the Princeton Review.
