U.S. News & World Report is out with its annual rankings of the best colleges in the country.

The College was ranked No. 21 nationally by U.S. News as a Best Value School, a measure of both academic quality and cost.

Iowa State among just public universities improved one spot this year, moving from No. 56 to No. 55 - although still below its No. 53 and No. 51 rankings the years prior.

In Maine, Bowdoin College in Brunswick ranked sixth - up one spot from a year ago - among national liberal arts colleges followed by Colby College in Waterville, which ranked 11th. Michigan Technological University finished tied for 147th overall after ranking 126th past year.

In the "Best Undergraduate Teaching" category, Emory tied for the No. 40 spot with eight other universities, including the Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Georgia, Northeastern University (Mass.) and the University of California, Santa Cruz.

UM was joined in the national rankings by Michigan State University, which finished tied for No. 84 overall and tied for 34th among public universities.

"BU created one of the first study overseas programs, and now sponsors more than 90 global programs", U.S. News writes, while praising such "highly ranked graduate schools" as the School of Law, the Questrom School of Business, the School of Medicine, the College of Engineering, and Wheelock College of Education & Human Development. National Universities, which focus on research and offer several doctoral programs, are ranked separately from National Liberal Arts Colleges, Regional Universities and Regional College. Schools in the internship category either require or encourage students to apply what they've learned in class to a real-world setting, like the more than 90 percent of Butler students who complete at least one internship before graduation.

The publication's methodology includes factors that tend to favor private universities, such as endowment size, rate of alumni giving and student-faculty ratio.

Critics say the rankings are based too much on prestige and wealth.

Colby and Bowdoin also ranked among the most innovative liberal arts schools, at 18th and 21st, respectively.

Vanderbilt also ranked highly in the recently released Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education College Rankings, based on 15 key indicators that assess colleges in four areas: outcomes, resources, engagement and environment.

This year, they reportedly looked at almost 1,400 colleges and universities, measuring them on factors including academic quality, graduation and retention rates, social mobility, and value. When you've submitted your account email, we will send an email with a reset code.
