Rollins College Ranked Among the Nation’s Best Colleges

For the 20th consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report has ranked Rollins among the top two regional universities in the South and first in Florida in its annual rankings of “Best Colleges.”

Rollins College has been ranked one of the top regional universities in the South in the annual rankings of “Best Colleges,” released today by U.S. News & World Report. Rollins was ranked No. 2 among the 126 universities in this category, which is composed of schools that provide a full range of undergraduate and master’s-level programs. For 20 consecutive years, Rollins has been ranked among the top two regional universities in the South and first in Florida.

Rollins was also ranked eighth in the South in the “Best Value Colleges” category for offering the best value, which relates academic quality with the net cost of attendance for a student who receives the average level of need-based financial aid.

“We are pleased to be recognized as one of the nation’s best institutions of higher education,” said Rollins College president Craig McAllaster. “Rollins has ranked among the top colleges and universities in the South since the rankings began, and our focus on providing an outstanding applied liberal arts education remains unchanged in its continuing relevance to today’s students.”

The “best college” rankings are based on surveys of college officials, combined with data provided by institutions, including graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources, and alumni giving.
