Rollins lands the No. 1 spot in StateUniversity.com’s rankings of the country’s best colleges and universities.
Rollins has been named the No. 1 college in Florida by StateUniversity.com, a leading statistics-based rankings and information aggregator.
The ranking is based on statistical analysis, comparison of student-faculty ratio, student retention, test scores, and other critical factors. First released in 2009, StateUniversity.com’s rankings were designed to compare raw statistical data, without peer ratings or subjective adjustment, and are based on U.S. government surveys and reports provided by the higher-education institutions themselves.
In its assessment, the No. 1 ranking notes Rollins’ academic rigor, pointing to accreditations from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business and the American Chemical Society as standout credentials.
In addition to the No. 1 college in Florida, Rollins was also ranked within the top 100 institutions nationwide, landing two spots higher than Johns Hopkins.
