Olivet College named a “Best College” by U.S. News & World Report
Sep 24, 2012

In its 2013 edition of America’s “Best Colleges,” U.S. News & World Report ranks Olivet College in the top tier of Best Regional Colleges Midwest. This is the second consecutive year that Olivet has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report among the best of its peer institutions.

“We’re pleased that U.S. News has affirmed what our students and alumni already know,” said Olivet College President Steven M. Corey, Ph.D., “that Olivet College provides an excellent educational experience.”

U.S. News & World Report is frequently cited as the nation’s premier college ranking publication. The rankings, which group schools based on categories created by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, have grown to be the most comprehensive research tool for students and parents considering higher education opportunities.

The 2013 report includes data on nearly 1,400 colleges and universities nationwide, with rankings based on several key measures of quality. The Regional Universities and Regional Colleges categories are based on the weighted scores of indicators including: peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources and alumni giving. Olivet earned the #62 spot in the Best Regional Colleges Midwest category. To review the complete methodology, visit http://www.usnews.com/collegemeth.

The rankings will be published in the 2013 edition of the “Best Colleges” guidebook, as well as the September issue of U.S. News & World Report. They are also available online at www.usnews.com/colleges.
