The Best of Rhode Island: Top New England Colleges 2012

Monday, March 05, 2012

Rhode Island often enjoys basking in the national spotlight when college and university rankings are released, due to the stellar performance of its own Brown University. And again, the Ivy League school perched on Providence’s College Hill did not disappoint, placing in the Top 5 of GoLocal’s 2012 Super Ranking of the Top Colleges in New England.

How did the state’s other schools fare in this first-ever super-ranking of all the colleges and universities in New England?

The best of the best

It’s no surprise that Brown, with consistent top rankings in national lists including US News & World Report, would place among New England’s top institutions, taking the #4 spot behind Yale, Harvard, and MIT. With top marks for everything from academics to its radio station (WBRU) and newspaper (the Brown Daily Herald), RI’s own Ivy held strong in the regional ranking.

How’d the rest of RI’s schools do?

After Brown, two RI schools battled for placement in the Top 35 of 89 New England schools: Bryant University in Smithfield snagged the #33 spot, followed immediately by Providence College at #34. Johnson and Wales notched the #50 ranking in New England, followed by Roger Williams at #54. Rhode Island’s public university, URI, placed at #61, followed by Rhode Island College at #68 and Salve Regina at #75. (The Rhode Island School of Design, often named to the top art and design schools in the nation, was not ranked as it’s not included in the national lists that made up GoLocal’s Super Ranking.)
