U.S. News once again ranks Lee in Top Tier

Posted


Lee University saw its ranking rise once again this year in the popular U.S. News & World Report “Best Colleges 2019” edition. This special edition was released Monday.
This year Lee claimed its spot in the top 50 “Best Regional Universities.” Lee was ranked No. 47 out of 165 Southern universities, which included masters-level universities, both public and private. 
The schools are ranked by graduation rate, peer-assessment, freshman retention rate, student-faculty ratio, and acceptance rate, among several other factors.
Also ranked with the university in this category were other nearby schools including University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (No. 65), University of North Georgia (No. 58), and Carson Newman University (No. 76).
Lee was also listed among the prestigious category called “A+ Schools for B Students,” which lists several dozen top-tier colleges and universities alphabetically by regions. This ranking included only 29 schools from the South. Lee was included along with schools such as Appalachian State University, Berry College and Samford University.
This ranking displays universities’ average ACT scores, average high school GPA of incoming freshman, and the percentage of incoming freshman who graduated in the top 25 percent of their class. 
The university also secured a spot among 30 schools in the “Best Value” category. Lee ranked No. 24, three spots above the 2018 rank of No. 27 in the same category.
U.S. News has been ranking colleges for 34 years and continues to be a closely watched college ranking. The magazine reviewed over 1,000 colleges and universities nationwide for the 2019 annual issue.
It ranked Princeton as America’s best national university, followed by Harvard and Columbia University.
