Emory University has placed 20th on U.S. News and World Report’s annual list of Best Colleges.
It was a three-way tie between Emory, Georgetown University and the University of California-Berkeley.
“Emory is recognized as a national and international leader in teaching, research and discovery,” Interim provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs Stuart Zola said in a press release. “Emory is consistently recognized in national surveys for our world-class faculty, vibrant scholars, and diverse and rich academic environment. While external recognition is gratifying, our focus continues to be on providing the best possible experience for our students.”
U.S. News and World Report ranked 1,374 colleges and universities.
“Under the rankings methodology, eligible schools are divided into different categories such as National Universities and Regional Colleges, and evaluated on up to 15 indicators of academic excellence, such as freshman retention, faculty resources and graduation rates – to name a few,” U.S. News and World Report said.
Emory’s current undergraduate enrollment is 6,867 students. Tuition for the 2016 school year is $47,954.
