(Jamestown College) – Jamestown College has again received the highest ranking of all North Dakota institutions in U.S. News and World Report’s “Best Colleges 2013” edition.

For the sixth consecutive year, Jamestown College is ranked in the top tier of Best Regional Colleges in the “Best Colleges 2013” rankings released Sept. 12.

“Jamestown College was the first North Dakota college or university to reach the top tier, and we remain the top-ranked North Dakota institution of higher learning among all categories,” says Jamestown College President Robert S. Badal.

U.S. News’ “Best Colleges” is the most recognized and popular of all college rankings. The report evaluates colleges and universities annually by assessing criteria such as peer assessment, graduation rate, student/faculty ratios, class size, alumni giving, and student testing scores. Categories are Regional Colleges, Regional Universities, National Universities and National Liberal Arts Colleges. Each category consists of a top tier and a second tier.

In addition to being named to the top tier of “Best Colleges 2013” by U.S. News and World Report, Jamestown College was recently named a “Best in the Midwest” college once again by Princeton Review.
