St. Lawrence University upheld its strong standing among the nation's top liberal arts colleges according to the U.S. News and World Report’s annual “Best Colleges” rankings, released on Monday, Sept. 14.
In the 2021 edition, St. Lawrence ranks 54 among the more than 200 liberal arts colleges ranked in the publication, and is also listed as a “best value” school. U.S. News also recognized the University for having the Most Students Studying Abroad and for being an A+ School for B students.
The report builds upon a long list of recent national recognitions for St. Lawrence from The Princeton Review, Fiske, and Kiplinger, among others.
U.S. News categorizes national liberal arts colleges as institutions that focus almost exclusively on undergraduate education and award at least 50 percent of their degrees in the arts and sciences, such as languages, literature, biology and life sciences, philosophy, and psychology. Fewer than half of the nation’s higher educational institutions are ranked in any category by the publication.
