Rhode Island College Again Ranks Among Best in New England

Rhode Island College has again been ranked one of the top colleges in New England, and its ranking improved over last year, according to GoLocalProv.com's “Super Ranking: Top New England Colleges 2013.”

Rhode Island College ranked 62nd out of the top 86 schools included in GoLocalProv.com’s list of New England’s best colleges and universities. That’s a six-point jump from last year when Rhode Island College ranked 68th.

In the state-by-state breakdown, Rhode Island College ranked sixth among seven colleges and universities in Rhode Island.  Brown University was rated highest, followed by Johnson & Wales University (tied for second), Providence College, Roger Williams University, Bryant University, Salve Regina University, Rhode Island College and the University of Rhode Island.

The GoLocalProv.com ranking of top colleges was published on the news site earlier today. The rankings are based in part on a variety of national sources, including the US News & World Report list of top colleges in the country. That ranking, released last fall, rated Rhode Island College 36th among all public colleges and universities in the northern region of the United States.

GoLocalProv.com also assessed more than 60 different factors, including overall quality, housing, diversity, nightlife, career preparation, social/academic balance and food quality.
