Catawba ranks 4th in region according to U.S. News

Catawba College

SALISBURY — Catawba College remains fourth among the “Best Regional Colleges” in the South, according to the 2019 U.S. News “Best Colleges” rankings released Sept. 10.

Additionally, U.S. News cites Catawba as a Best Value School for its commitment to undergraduate teaching and for being the No. 1 Best College for Veterans.

“U.S. News and Princeton Review continue to recognize Catawba College as one of this nation’s best institutions for higher education,” said college President Brien Lewis. “Our consistent inclusion in these publications indicates that our efforts to engage our students in the classrooms and in the life of the college and to prepare them for life after college are measurably successful”

Catawba was among about 1,400 institutions that were ranked by U.S. News.

In the Regional Colleges category, institutions are ranked according to geographic region: North, South, Midwest and West. Schools in this category focus almost entirely on undergraduate studies and offer a range of programs in the liberal arts, which account for fewer than half of the bachelor’s degrees granted, and in fields such as business, nursing and education.

U.S. News rankings for 2019 are based on key measures of quality, all of which are weighted. These measures include outcomes such as social mobility; graduation and retention; graduation rate performance; faculty resources; expert opinion; financial resources; student excellence; and alumni giving.

U.S. News “Best Colleges” rankings 2019 marks the 34th year of this publication. Learn more at www.usnews.com/colleges.
