HPU Named No. 1 Twice in "America’s Best Colleges" by U.S. News and World Report

09.11.2012

HIGH POINT, N.C., Sept. 12, 2012 — Today High Point University was named No. 1 in Best Regional Colleges in the South, up from No. 3 at the same time last year, and No. 1 in Up and Coming Schools in Regional Colleges in the South, up from No. 2, in “America’s Best Colleges” 2013 edition, published by the U.S. News & World Report.

“We are complimented to be recognized at this level of excellence,” says Dr. Nido Qubein, HPU president. “These rankings reflect the hard work of our stellar faculty and dedicated staff.”

The university has steadily moved up in the rankings as it continues to grow; just a few years ago in the 2007 report, it occupied the No. 15 spot.

The U.S. News rankings evaluate the top 1,400 accredited four-year schools in the country based on several key measures of quality including peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, undergraduate academic reputation, faculty resources, experiential learning opportunities and more. The list provides the most in-depth and complete rankings in higher education.

High Point University is also recognized through numerous other rankings and lists including America’s Top Colleges by Forbes, Parade Magazine’s Top Private Schools in the Nation, Colleges of Distinction and the John Templeton Foundation’s list of Colleges that Encourage Character Development.
