Marist in Top 10 of U.S. News & World Report's 2018 "Best Colleges"

Marist campus

POUGHKEEPSIE– Marist College held its No. 9 spot for the second year in a row on U.S. News & World Report’s latest rankings of the “Best Regional Universities” in the Northern United States, one of the most influential lists of top American colleges and universities. In addition, Marist came in at No. 2 on the 2018 list of the “Best Colleges for Veterans” in the North. 

The U.S. News rankings are based on peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, class size, the academic quality of the freshmen class, student selectivity, and alumni giving.

“Being ranked among the top 10 best regional universities is extremely gratifying and is a testament to our dedicated faculty and staff and motivated students,” said David Yellen, president of Marist College. “We take pride in the recognition we receive from the respected institutions that evaluate our academic programs and our resources.”

This distinction is in addition to the recognition given to two Marist College online degree programs – the Master of Business Administration and the BA/BS in Professional Studies – which both ranked among the top in U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Online Education Programs” for 2017. Both programs have appeared on the list since its inception in 2012. Finally, Marist again appears on the publication's "Best Of" list for graduate business programs, which debuted in 2015.
