Tezpur University Ranks in Top 1000 Universities in the World

Tezpur University Ranks in Top 1000 Universities in the World

Princeton University is No. 1 on the Best National Universities list for the seventh year in a row. The Charlottesville school was also named the third-best public university in the US behind the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of California, Los Angeles.

Harvard University took the No. 2 spot in the U.S News rankings, followed by the University of Chicago, Yale University, Columbia University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Massachusetts.

Now, it's earned the college recognition as a "most innovative school".

UB improved on several metrics tracked by the magazine, including reputational ranking by university peers, increase in SAT scores, increase in number of classes of fewer than 20 students and higher graduation rate.

Western was recognized in the U.S.News rankings for graduation rates (six-year), freshmen retention rates, undergraduate business programs, undergraduate engineering programs (no doctorate), least debt (class of 2015), highest proportion of classes under 20 students, most global students, economic diversity and campus ethnic diversity.

Louisiana Tech and Louisiana State University were the only two public institutions in the state to achieve a Tier One National Universities designation.

Milwaukee Brewers ace Jimmy Nelson suffers season-ending injury
Instead of going with rookie Brandon Woodruff on the hill, the Brewers chose to give Matt Garza another shot and it backfired. Their confidence and resilience has been strong all season, and there's no reason to believe that will change any time soon.

Among Texas colleges, Dallas Baptist University took the biggest climb in the rankings, rising from 214 in the US last year to 202 this year. That ranking is up four spots from a year ago.

U.S. News & World Report has released its 2018 college rankings, and two Alabama institutions lead their divisions as top picks for veterans. In a media release touting it's steady climb in the regional rankings over the years, Misericordia renewed past criticism of one aspect of the ranking system: It can reward larger schools simply for being better known. The School of Management is also highly rated, at No. 78, among more than 700 accredited schools. The rankings are based on research of more than 1,400 institutions nationally.

For the 24th consecutive year, Oklahoma Baptist University is the highest-ranking Oklahoma school on the Best Regional Colleges list.

Overall, local higher education institutions are moving up the competitive ladder in various categories of the annual rankings, created to help parents and students with the higher ed selection process. The top schools on that list are names that almost everyone knows: Princeton first and Harvard second.

The University of Tulsa finished first in the state at 87 in a three-way tie.

The university pointed to its graduation and student retention rates as key categories catapulting it forward.
