Alcorn State University ranked on College Raptor’s 2018 Best Colleges in the U.S. list (576 hits)

Alcorn State University is being heralded as one of the top historically black colleges and universities (HBCU) in the country.

The University is ranked number 18 on CollegeRaptor.com’s 2018 Top 25 Best HBCUs list. The selection recognizes Alcorn as one of the best colleges in the country, based on key factors such as graduation rates, campus diversity, student endowment and other elements that are reported by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) for the most recent enrollment year.

President Alfred Rankins Jr. is pleased with the University being recognized as one of the best colleges in the country. He credits the Alcorn community for their commitment to greatness.

“The faculty, staff and most importantly, the students, are key players in all of the success that Alcorn achieves,” said Rankins. “This accomplishment is a testament to the hard work and dedication of those who hold Alcorn close to their hearts. Our main goal is to strive for excellence.”

College Raptor’s rankings began four years ago in an attempt to better represent an overall assessment of the health and quality of a college. The website’s ranking comprises a number of specific factors that are then combined into a single weighted score, which determines a college’s overall rank.
