St. John Fisher College Recognized by Forbes
St. John Fisher College has been cited on the fifth annual list of America’s Top Colleges published by Forbes.com. Of the approximately 3,000 accredited colleges and universities in the United States, this report ranks 650 undergraduate institutions based on the quality of the education they provide and how much their students achieve.
Fisher was ranked number 440 out of the 650. Of those 650 schools, 56 are in New York State. The only other Rochester-based schools included on this list are the University of Rochester (100), Hobart and William Smith Colleges (134), SUNY Geneseo (322), and Rochester Institute of Technology (551).
The rankings are compiled by the Center for College Affordability & Productivity (CCAP). The CCAP and Forbes use five general categories to rank each school, including student satisfaction, post-graduate success, student debt, four-year graduation rate, and academic success.
“This recognition from Forbes.com is the result of the hard work and dedication of the entire campus community,” said Dr. Donald E. Bain, President of the College. “Our focus has always been on the centrality of the liberal arts foundation while offering excellent professional degrees in several academic disciplines. We provide a student-centered educational environment and a strong commitment to lifelong learning.”
