Top School List

BU on list of top schools in the country

Three of the best colleges in the nation are in the Susquehanna Valley, according to a recent magazine ranking.

Bloomsburg, Bucknell and Susquehanna universities were graded based on quality of education, affordability and alumni success by Money magazine. Out of 705 four-year colleges and universities reviewed, Bucknell ranks 152, Bloomsburg follows close behind at 169 and Susquehanna is at 313.

Bloomsburg University ranks within the top 200 for value in part due to its 65 percent graduation rate, which is nearly 30 percent higher than other schools with a similar demographic.

The university is also noted for boosting the number of minority students among its 8,630 student population to 21 percent in the past year.

"It is an honor to be included in this prestigious listing," President David L. Soltz said. "Bloomsburg University is committed to providing a high-quality and affordable education. Success cannot be measured by numbers alone, but combined with our alumni stories of personal and professional success, this ranking reaffirms the lifelong value of a Bloomsburg University education."
