  • Why JUST ranks top

University of Delhi and University of Mumbai have left two top IITs behind to grab a spot in the top 500 universities in the QS Graduate Employability Ranking. "This is yet another great tribute to our faculty, staff, alumni and students on the great things happening here at Wesleyan".

Compared to other public schools around the country, Penn State was ranked 14th while the University of Pittsburgh came in at No. 24.

BU also remains among the top 30 universities for undergrad engineering programs.

The data for the Student Debt Load at Graduation list includes loans taken out by students from their colleges, from private financial institutions and the government.

Zukoski noted that UB achieved record undergraduate enrollment for the 2016-17 academic year and is expecting to report near-record undergraduate enrollment this year as well. It also ranked No. 100 in the world in 2017, according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. Critics call the rankings too simplistic and say students and school administrators pay too much attention to them.

Virginia Tech University ranked 69 in the National University Ranking list. These top universities "offer a full range of undergraduate majors, plus master's and Ph.D. programs, and emphasize faculty research", according to U.S. News.

Princeton University retained the No. 1 spot on the National Universities list followed by Harvard University, Yale University and University of Chicago (tied for No. 3), and Columbia University, Stanford University, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (tied for No. 5).

Number 5: Columbia University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University

"We always appreciate education leaders across the country recognizing HPU for distinction", HPU President Nido Qubein said.

Spring Arbor University is ranked 64 in Midwestern regional universities and 39 both as a "best college for veterans" and "best value school".

Other Oklahoma schools on the list of Best Regional Colleges in the West and their rankings are St. Gregory's University in Shawnee, 19, and Southwestern Christian University in Bethany, 21.

Mount St. Joseph University also dropped about 10 spots for the second year in a row to 87 among regional universities in the Midwest.

The University of Cincinnati has again risen in the ranks.

"We are thrilled that U.S. News & World Report continues to recognize Florida State University as one of the best universities in the nation", FSU President John Thrasher said.
