For the second year in a row, Colby-Sawyer College landed on the U.S. News & World Report’s list of best regional colleges in the North and was recognized as a Best Value in the same category, which is composed of colleges that focus on undergraduate education but grant fewer than half their degrees in liberal arts disciplines.
Colby-Sawyer also scored the #3 spot on the Best Undergraduate Teaching list for its category, the only New Hampshire college to be recognized.
When U.S. News & World Report unveiled the 2019 Best Colleges on Sept. 10, it again ranked Colby-Sawyer #7 in Regional Colleges North (the highest in that category of any college in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Vermont) and #5 in the Best Value category, the highest of any regional college in New England.
“Colby-Sawyer is pleased to be included in the U.S. News & World Report’s 2019 Best Colleges rankings. We are especially proud to be recognized for our exemplary undergraduate teaching,” said Colby-Sawyer President Susan D. Stuebner. “U.S. News and other guidebooks remain primary resources that prospective students and their families use to explore colleges and universities. That said, there is no substitute for visiting our campus to determine whether there is a good fit between what Colby-Sawyer offers and what a student seeks. A great opportunity to visit and get to know our campus is the Fall Open House on Oct. 13.”
The rankings for Best Undergraduate Teaching focus on schools where faculty and administrators are committed to teaching undergraduate students in a high-quality manner.
“Our students know their faculty are committed to their success here at Colby-Sawyer College and long after they have graduated,” said Academic Vice President and Dean of Faculty Laura Sykes. “They are content experts in their discipline who engage students in the course material and provide both rigor and support to find and apply their voices in and out of the classroom and the workplace.”
