LYNCHBURG – Randolph College was once again ranked among the nation’s top liberal arts colleges by one of the nation’s most recognizable college guidebooks. Randolph was ranked 112th for national liberal arts colleges in the 2013 edition of U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges.
This is the second consecutive year the College has ranked 112th in the rankings. Over the past four years, Randolph has risen from 118th to 112th. This accomplishment is the latest in a growing number of accomplishments for Randolph College. In addition to yet another year of increased enrollment, the College is undergoing one of the largest renovations in decades—a $6 million renovation of its Student Center. That project was completely funded by five alumnae and their families.
The College was also recognized recently by the Fiske Guide to College, The Princeton Review, and Forbes. The Princeton Review also named Randolph a Best Value during the spring, and Newsweek also recently ranked Randolph’s faculty first in the nation for accessibility.
The 2013 rankings of the U.S. News & World Report include data on more than 1,400 accredited four-year schools, comparing them by a set of 16 indicators of excellence including peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources, and alumni giving, graduation rate performance, and high school counselor ratings.View the rankings at www.usnews.com
