In the 2016 U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges rankings, released today, Arcadia University is ranked 41 out of 183 institutions in the North Regional University category, which is tied for fifth among universities in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for the North category. That puts Arcadia in the top 22 percent among colleges and universities in its respective category.

One of the hallmarks of an Arcadia education, personal attention, was noted, as the percentage of classes with fewer than 20 students remained high, at 70 percent; the University’s student-to-faculty ratio is an impressive 13:1.

The U.S. News & World Report’s North Regional University category comprises Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington, D.C. Regional universities are those that provide a full range of undergraduate majors and graduate programs but offer few, if any, doctoral programs.

Earlier this year, The Princeton Review named Arcadia University among the “Best in the Northeast” in its 2016 Best Colleges: Region by Region, citing Arcadia’s global perspective, “phenomenal study abroad program,” and “excellent academics.” Last year, Arcadia was ranked first in the nation for the fifth year in a row by the Institute of International Education’s Open Doors Report for the percentage of undergraduate students participating in a study abroad experience, marking the sixth time in the past seven years the University has earned the No. 1 ranking.
