Monmouth University receives a Top 25 U.S. News ranking
WEST LONG BRANCH - Monmouth University has broken into the list of top 25 Best Colleges of U.S. News & World Report, placing 23rd in the Northeast Regional Universities category.
University officials said the honor is the highest the college has reached in the annual list. Regional Universities are described as those that “offer a full range of undergraduate programs and some master's programs but few doctoral programs.”
“I am incredibly proud that our commitment to academic excellence and expanded opportunity for students is reflected in our newest scorecard from U.S. News & World Report,” Monmouth University President Patrick F. Leahy said in a statement. “We are welcoming our most academically prepared and diverse cohort of first-year students this fall, and the strides we are making reflect the quality of our faculty and our focus on delivering an outstanding education to our undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students.”
The newly released U.S. News & World Report list ranks colleges on up to 17 measures of academic excellence and other criteria such as graduation and retention rates. Also making the Northeast Regional list is The College of New Jersey in Ewing, which placed fifth.
