Atherton, CA (PRWEB) September 14, 2012
U.S. News & World Report has named Menlo College a "Best Regional College" in its 2013 edition of "America’s Best Colleges," released this week. Menlo ranked in the top tier of schools in the Regional Colleges (West) category. This is the second year consecutively that Menlo College has received this honor.
"Achieving this distinction shows the tremendous efforts of our faculty, staff, and students," said President James Kelly. "Menlo College is honored to reflect and emulate the innovation and success that exemplifies our Silicon Valley location. We have talented, hard-working students, and we are privileged to serve them and our community by fostering excellence."
Regional colleges are classified as schools that emphasize undergraduate education, but award fewer than 50% of their degrees in the liberal arts. In total, 370 colleges are ranked as "Best Regional Colleges" according to geographic region (North, South, Midwest, and West).
Menlo College’s "Best Regional College" designation comes recently after Menlo was named “Best in the West” by The Princeton Review for the fourth straight year.
