Delaware Valley College has been named as a top college by U.S. News & World Report for the tenth consecutive year.

For the second year, U.S. News has ranked DelVal among the top 20 northern colleges on its “Best Regional Colleges” list.

U.S. News gathers data from colleges on up to 16 indicators of academic excellence. The rankings are based on factors related to academic quality such as: peer assessment, student selectivity, graduation and retention rates, resources, faculty, average class size, and more.

“DelVal is a College that is on the move. Pride, excitement, and momentum are building on campus as we move towards university status,” said College President Dr. Joseph S. Brosnan. “The recent rankings by both The Princeton Review and U.S. News & World Report are evidence of our dedication to providing not only strong academic programs, but a personal, caring community where students thrive.”


A full list of the rankings will appear in U.S. News & World Report’s 2013 edition of “Best Colleges.” Highlights are available now on the U.S. News website.

U.S. News provides rankings as a research tool for students and parents considering various institutions.
According to U.S. News, the regional college list on which DelVal appears includes schools in the north that focus on the undergraduate experience and offer a broad range of programs.
