Gustavus Adolphus College has been named the best college or university in Minnesota for 2016-2017 according Learn How To Become’s annual rankings. With a composite score of 99.73, the College ranked first among four year public and private nonprofit colleges and universities in the state.
“We’re proud to be recognized among the top liberal arts colleges in Minnesota and the nation,” Assistant Vice President for Enrollment Kirk Carlson said. “Paired with visits to campus to meet professors, students, and staff, rankings can play a valuable role in helping students choose the college that’s the right fit.”
The organization’s rankings considered traditional college measures such as student/teacher ratio, graduation rate, and financial aid statistics along with outcome-based findings including median annual alumni earnings, availability of advising, placement, and employment services, and student loan default rates.
In addition to ranking first overall among the 32 Minnesota colleges and universities included, Gustavus also comes in fourth on the site’s list of Minnesota Colleges with Highest-Paid Alumni.
