Rollins College was named No. 1 among 50 regional universities in the South in a new ranking based on a nationwide survey of entering first-year students.
College Choice has published their first annual ranking of regional universities in the South. The rankings are based exclusively on factors actual college students said were most important to their college decision. According to the most recent annual CIRP Freshmen Survey by the Higher Education Research Institute, these factors include academic reputation, financial aid offerings, overall cost, and success of graduates in the post-college job market.
Rollins College is at the top of the list. Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, and The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, came in second and third, respectively.
College Choice is an independent online publication dedicated to helping students and their families find the right college. Their rankings and reviews are intended to make choosing the best college easier.
