Best of the Best

Best of the Best

We all know that Penn State is among the best universities in the world. Back in August, the US News & World report ranked Penn State 37th on the list of best Universities in the nation. Then, in September, State College was ranked the second smartest town in American (according to Luminosity)! It’s pretty awesome knowing that the town you live in and the school you go to are among the best of the best.

In case you weren’t aware, Penn State has been killing it in the rankings! Here are a few PSU rankings that are sure to impress your friends and family at Thanksgiving dinner:

  • Penn State is #1 for career services according to the Princeton Review. Between the career fairs, mock interviews, Nittany Lion Career Network and career planning workshops there’s no reason why we shouldn’t be ranked #1!

  • Our landscape architecture program is #1 according to Design Intelligence

  • Ranked #1 among universities with rolling admission according to U.S. News & World Report

  • #5 for best health services according to the Princeton Review: With nutritionists, physical therapists, pharmaceuticals and physicians on staff, our university health services are always available and ready to care of the students.

  • The Collegian is ranked #5 for best college newspaper according to the Princeton Review

  • #8 for best library according to the Association of Research Libraries: Our library is ranked above both Cornell AND Princeton!

  • #8th best public school in the nation according to the U.S. News & World Report

  • The NCAA ranked Penn State #12 for best athlete graduation rate for 2013

Pretty cool, right? And this is only a FEW of the rankings! Penn State is also ranked highly in Greek life, intramural sports, clubs and so much more. If you’re still looking to broaden your PSU knowledge you can find more facts here!

Oh and don’t forget, this is the LAST canning weekend! Be sure to look for the THON cans to donate if you haven’t had a chance to (or if you want to donate again)! Help us end pediatric cancer!
