For the 15th consecutive year, Bryan College has been named to the Top Tier of southern baccalaureate colleges by U.S. News & World Report.


In the southern region, Bryan ranked fourth in average graduation rate (63 percent) and average freshman retention rate (74 percent). The college was eighth in the region’s top 20 schools in percentage of freshmen who were in the top 25 percent of their high school graduating class (53 percent).


“We appreciate this independent evaluation that places Bryan College among the top regional institutions,” Bryan President Dr. Stephen D. Livesay said. “The U.S. News survey highlights some significant areas that should be of interest to students and parents, and we continue to work to excel there. But the true value of a Bryan education is harder to quantify since it is found in the quality of instruction and the commitment of our faculty and staff to the development of students’ lives.”
