Lasell Ranked Among Best Colleges by U.S. News and World Report for 2012

October 20, 2011

Lasell College has been ranked as a "Best Regional College" in the North Region for 2012 by the national publication U.S. News and World Report.

The national publication ranked Lasell College 22nd for "Best Regional College" - North.

In 1983, U.S. News and World Report began its annual rankings of American colleges and universities. Data is collected and tabulated on each participating school for up to 16 indicators of academic quality including peer review, student selectivity, faculty resources, retention. Then colleges are ranked in their category by their total weighted score.

Regional Colleges (defined by the Carnegie Foundation as Baccalaureate Colleges-Diverse; Baccalaureate/Associate Colleges; Associate's-Public 4-year, Primarily Associate's; Associate's-Private Not-for-profit 4-year, Primarily Associate's; and Associate's-Private For-profit 4-year, Primarily Associate's) focus primarily on undergraduate education, just as the liberal arts colleges do, but grant fewer than 50 percent of their degrees in liberal arts disciplines. At these schools, at least 10 percent of undergraduate degrees awarded are bachelor's degrees. There are a total of 370 regional colleges, ranked within four regions: North, South, Midwest, and West.
