UJ Ranked Highest Among ND Institutions

The University of Jamestown has again received the highest ranking of all North Dakota institutions in any category of U.S. News and World Report’s “Best Colleges 2017” edition, released Sept. 13. For the tenth consecutive year, the University is ranked in the top tier of Best Regional Colleges, moving up twelve places from its 2016 rankings.

President Robert S. Badal commented on this new ranking, saying, “University of Jamestown is now recognized as a ‘top 25’ regional Midwest college, as we continue as the leader in North Dakota.”
U.S. News and World Report’s “Best Colleges” is the most recognized and popular of all college rankings. The report evaluates colleges and universities annually by assessing criteria such as peer assessment, graduation rate, student/faculty ratios, class size, alumni giving, and student testing scores. Categories are Regional Colleges, Regional Universities, National Universities, and National Liberal Arts Colleges.

In addition to its U.S. News and World Report ranking, the University of Jamestown was once again named a “Best in the Midwest” college by Princeton Review and ranked number one in North Dakota as a “Best College for the Money” by College Factual.
