Monmouth University Moves Up in U.S. News & World Report Annual Ranking of Best Colleges

Monmouth University moved up in the U.S. News & World Report’s annual ranking of Best Colleges, climbing one spot to 36. The region’s premier private coastal university has risen 40 spots since 2005, eclipsing nearly three-quarters of the universities in its category (Regional Universities North).

“It’s fantastic to see our ranking rise once again in U.S. News & World Report and to be recognized as one of the best colleges in the nation,” said President Paul R. Brown, Ph.D. “Monmouth University offers students an environment for transformative learning and immersive personal experiences both inside and outside the classroom. We take pride in preparing students to succeed in life after Monmouth.”

Monmouth University is also one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features the school in the new 2016 edition of its annual higher education guide, “The Best 380 Colleges.”

In addition, Monmouth is the only New Jersey institution included in the “most beautiful coastal campus” list by Best Value Schools (BVS).
