U.S. News & World Report magazine released its “America’s Best Colleges” survey and ranked St. Thomas at No. 124 – an increase of 13 positions from last year’s ranking.
“I definitely think we should be higher, like 50,” senior Amanda Sawatzky said. “This is just a great place to go to school.”
The rankings were based on several indicators including academic reputation, freshman retention rates and surveys from high school counselors.
St. Thomas competed against 262 American universities in the National Universities category.
