Delaware Valley College named a top school by U.S. News & World Report

Sep 10, 2013

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

For 2014 rankings, U.S. News ranked DelVal among the top 25 colleges in the North on its “Best Regional Colleges” list.

U.S. News defines a “regional college” as a school that focuses on undergraduate education, but grants fewer than half of its degrees in the liberal arts disciplines

U.S. News gathers data from colleges on 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.

“We provide an excellent education that puts our graduates on the path for success,” said College President Dr. Joseph S. Brosnan. “We are consistently ranked for the quality of education we provide by both The Princeton Review and U.S. News & World Report because of our strong academic programs and faculty, and because of our focus on providing a personal, caring atmosphere where students thrive.”

A full list of the rankings will appear in U.S. News & World Report’s 2014 edition of “Best Colleges.”

U.S. News provides rankings as a research tool for students and parents considering various institutions. The College was also recently recommended by The Princeton Review in its “Best in the Northeast” section of its “Best Colleges: Region by Region” feature for the fourth consecutive year.
