SUNY Oswego has once again earned a top 50 ranking in the 2018 “Top Regional Universities in the North” from U.S. News and World Report, as well as a top 100 placement in Washington Monthly, which rates schools on their contribution to the public good.

Oswego tied for 13th among public universities in the North Region, 48th overall, among institutions in the U.S. News and World Report ratings, based on rankings released Sept. 12. The college also kept its place on the A+ for B Students list.

U.S. News’ staff compiles data from hundreds of schools around the country, striving to offer prospective college students and their parents the best analysis available for comparing academic excellence. U.S. News & World Report defines regional universities as institutions that “provide a full range of undergraduate majors and master’s programs” but “few, if any, doctoral programs.”

U.S. News also includes Oswego in its Best Online Graduate Business Programs: MBA, top 5 nationally for Women Enrolled in MBA Programs, and Green Colleges guide.

Washington Monthly, looks at colleges through metrics on their contribution to the good of society, named SUNY Oswego #86 in the nation among master’s-level universities.

We rate schools based on their contribution to the public good in three broad categories: Social Mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), Research (producing cutting-edge scholarship and PhDs), and Service (encouraging students to give something back to their country),” Washington Monthly explains on their website.

“SUNY Oswego provides a strong foundation for our students to build better lives, and these rankings show we are among the best options in our class, especially among public colleges,” said President Deborah F. Stanley. “But beyond the numbers, the day-to-day successes and positive stories of our students, faculty, staff and alumni working together to find solutions for the grand challenges of our time are most impressive.”
