U.S. News Recognizes Le Moyne for 21st Consecutive Year

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release) … In rankings released this morning by U.S. News & World Report, Le Moyne College is again ranked as one of America’s “Best Colleges” based on its academic quality. This marks the 21st consecutive year that the College has received this distinction.

In the 2013 issue of “America’s Best Colleges” guidebook, Le Moyne College placed #20 for “Best Colleges” in the North Regional Universities category. Colleges are rated based on a variety of factors, including peer assessment; graduation and retention rates; faculty resources; student selectivity; financial resources; and alumni giving.

Le Moyne was named #9 in the Regional Universities North “Great Schools, Great Prices” list and was included in the “A-Plus Schools for B-Students” listing for the Regional Universities North category.

The publication designates schools in four major categories – national universities, national liberal arts colleges, regional universities and regional colleges. Le Moyne and other institutions in the regional universities category provide a full range of undergraduate majors and master’s programs, but unlike national universities, offer few, if any, doctoral programs.

Information on rankings and methodology may be found here. The Best Colleges 2013 guidebook will be in stores on Tuesday, Sept. 18.
