Shorter receives accolades from publications
U.S. News & World Report has again included Shorter College among the top-tier baccalaureate institutions in its 2010 “America’s Best Colleges” rankings. The rankings place Shorter at No. 17 on the list of the South’s top baccalaureate colleges. This is the ninth consecutive year Shorter has been included among the top regional baccalaureate institutions and marks a three-slot rise over last year’s placement.
In addition, Shorter ranked in the Top Ten among Southern baccalaureate institutions in the “Great Schools, Great Prices” listing also done by U.S. News. Shorter came in at No. 7 on the “Great Schools, Great Prices” list, which considers academic quality (as determined by the U.S. News rankings) and the net cost of attendance for a student who receives the average level of need-based financial aid.
The Princeton Review has named Shorter a “Best in the Southeast” college for the fifth consecutive year. The magazine’s rankings are based on the results of data received from administrators at colleges and universities across the nation, as well as answers provided to an 80-question survey given to students at those schools. Shorter is one of 141 schools in the Southeast that hold this title.
