All area four-year institutions of higher education found a home somewhere in the annual U.S. News and World Report college rankings released Tuesday, though the University of Scranton may have earned local bragging rights. This year Berkeley, UCLA, University of Southern California and Emory University are tied. "We are very proud of that status and find it to be one of our primary attractions for our new and transfer students". Several schools came in over the $50,000 mark, including Columbia University in NY, which charges about $57,000 a year, according to the rankings. The popular rankings give Tulane high marks in numerous categories, noting it as a national research university known for the innovation of its curriculum, its focus on student success, its welcoming of veterans and its dedication to public service.

NC State also scored higher on the list of schools offering the best value for the money, ranking 46th among national universities this year, a jump of 16 spots over last year. In this year's rankings, there are 230 schools listed in the top tier.

Additionally, the university was ranked an A+ school for B students by U.S. News, named as a university where students with good grades and a strong aptitude for learning have "a good chance at being accepted and thriving, where spirit and hard work could make all the difference to the admissions office".

Local schools routinely boast a bit about these and other rankings, but also point out weaknesses in the methodology used by U.S. News. It ranked 6th in the region a year ago. The data included loans taken out by students from their colleges, from private financial institutions, and from federal, state, and local governments.

"In our first year as a regionally accredited institution, we're pleased to have been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top regional universities in the South-and as one offering best value".
