GoLocal’s Super Ranking: Top New England Colleges 2012

Monday, March 05, 2012

 

For the first time, New England's schools--from major universities to liberal arts colleges--have been assessed in a super-ranking that combines the nation's top educational rankings with grassroots student-oriented assessments. The result: a fresh view of how the full educational experience stacks up… from the Ivies to the NESCAC, and beyond. The richest educational region of country now has its own rankings, and the new list may suprise you.

Super-rankings: new methodology

In search of a truly well-rounded snapshot of each college and university in New England, GoLocal utilized a combination of rankings derived from national sources, including US News & World Report, the Princeton Review, Forbes Magazine, and Washington Monthly, as well as Inside College, the Daily Beast, and College Prowler. From there, our researchers assessed more than 60 different factors, from overall quality rankings both nationally and regionally to rankings for best professors, housing, diversity, nightlife, career preparation, social/academic balance, and of course, food.

With a proprietary formula created to value the many characteristics that combine to form an overall picture of the "greatness " of a college or university campus, GoLocal's 2012 New England College Super Ranking presents a fresh view of the best of the best in New England. Where did your school rank?

Top 10 New England Colleges

By combining attributes that honored classroom experiences and faculty access, the Top 10 Colleges for 2012 yielded some surprises, as small liberal arts colleges bested Ivy League institutions. And even within what is often perceived as the pecking order among New England's top small colleges, there were some surprising rankings.  For the Top 10 schools, go here. For the entire ranking list, go here.
