Meredith College Earns #3 Ranking from U.S. News
Meredith College is ranked third on the 2013 edition of U.S. News & World Report list of the South’s Best Regional Colleges.
Meredith was also named to the “Great Schools, Great Prices” list, ranked 9th among regional colleges in the South. U.S. News describes this ranking as “taking into account a school’s academic quality, and the 2011-12 cost of attendance for students who receive the average level of need-based financial aid.”
The U.S. News ranking system places colleges and universities in one of four categories: national universities, national liberal arts colleges, regional universities and regional colleges.
U.S. News divides colleges and universities by the following regions: North, South, West and Midwest. Schools are ranked using several indicators including peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources (class size, faculty/student ratio, percentage of full-time faculty), student selectivity (average SAT scores, acceptance rate) and alumni giving percentage.
