UVF Ranked Among Best Regional Colleges in the North

The University of Valley Forge (UVF) was recently included among the 2018 Best Regional Colleges – North by College Consensus. College Consensus is a “new college ratings website that aggregates publisher rankings and student reviews” and publishes them accordingly.

“Regional colleges are defined as being primarily associate’s and bachelor’s institutions that offer programs for a statewide or regional audience. The Best Regional College – North includes the smaller colleges and junior colleges that do not have master’s programs or high-profile research, but do make top-quality education accessible. The North has a lot of competition, but these are the colleges experts and students agree are the smartest choices.”

To help prospective college students and their families evaluate the educational options open to them, College Consensus has identified the best regional colleges in the North, according to the combination of published rankings and student reviews. The top 12, out of nearly 50, are

      1. Cooper Union – New York, NY
      2. US Merchant Marine Academy – Nassau County, NY
      3. Messiah College – Mechanicsburg, PA
      4. Cedar Crest College – Allentown, PA
      5. SUNY College of Technology at Alfred – Alfred, NY
      6. St. Francis College – Brooklyn, NY
      7. Wilson College – Chambersburg, PA
      8. SUNY College of Agriculture and Technology at Cobleskill – Cobleskill, NY
      9. University of Maine at Fort Kent – Fort Kent, ME
      10. La Roche College – Pittsburgh, PA
      11. Mount Aloysius College – Cresson, PA

“With our unique method, College Consensus forms a ranking that represents the best regional colleges in the north in a different light than usual,” according to Managing Editor Carrie Sealey-Morris. “By taking into account both publisher rankings and student reviews,” as Sealey-Morris explains, “everything makes it in – academic reputation, student satisfaction, social mobility, affordability, and much more.” As an aggregate ranking, “some colleges that get overlooked in other rankings get their say, and others that dominate the conversation have to give some way.”

Students will not find a more comprehensive ranking of the top colleges and universities anywhere. In addition to rankings, College Consensus also offers expert advice and guidance on all aspects of college life, from finding the perfect college, to getting accepted, paying for it, and finding your professional path after graduation.
