How RI Colleges Ranked—Top New England Colleges 2013

Saturday, June 01, 2013

 

Johnson & Wales jumped up the ladder to share the #2 best ranking in Rhode Island with Providence College.

How did Rhode Island's universities and colleges fare on GoLocal's 2nd annual Super Ranking: Top New England Colleges 2013?

Some did very well indeed.

#1 in RI: Brown University

It’s no surprise that Brown University, with consistent top rankings in national lists including US News & World Report, would place among New England’s top institutions, taking the #4 spot from the second year in a row, behind Harvard, Yale, 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.

#2 in RI: JWU + PC tie

After Brown, two RI schools battled for placement in the Top 35 of the 86 of the best New England schools, literally in a dead heat: Johnson & Wales and Providence College shared the #33 ranking for 2013. For JWU, that's a big jump up from its #50 ranking for 2012. PC improved one spot from its 2012 ranking of #34.

#3 in RI: RWU makes a big jump

Next in the New England rankings came Roger Williams University, taking #41 for 2013. That's another big jump, from #54 in 2012.

#4 in RI: Bryant falls

Following Roger Williams was Smithfield's Bryant University, at #48, a 15-spot drop for the business-oriented institution.

#5 in RI: Salve makes biggest jump of the pack

Following Bryant came Salve Regina University, which took the #52 spot in 2013, and was the biggest leap up the ladder at 23 slots from 2012's #75. 

#6 in RI: RIC moves up

Rhode Island College was also upwardly mobile in the new rankings, moving up 6 spots to claim the #62 ranking.

#7 in RI: URI falls to last place

Closing up the line was the University of Rhode Island, the state's major public university, claiming the #68 spot for 2013, down 7 spots from 2012. 

(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.)
