US News ranks Bryan Top Tier for 14th year
August 22, 2008
U.S. News released its 2008 rankings of colleges and universities Aug. 22, and Bryan moved up one spot in the ranking of southern institutions from a year ago. Bryan is rated No. 11 this year, with an overall score of 77, and is tied with King College of Bristol, Tenn., at that spot.
Improvements in Bryan’s ranking included “peer assessment” or evaluation by officials at other institutions and average graduation rate.
“It is encouraging to see a report such as this which helps confirm that Bryan is on the right track in our efforts to offer a quality education to a growing student body,” President Dr. Stephen D. Livesay said. “The qualities that U.S. News examines for its rankings are key factors that prospective students use to evaluate their college choices. Other measures, such as students’ performance on major field exams show that students who choose Bryan are well prepared for their chosen vocations."
“Bryan’s commitment to a Christ-centered education means that in addition to quality academics, students receive an education that touches their whole person—body, mind and spirit.”
Bryan opens its 79th academic year on Aug. 27.
