UGA up in rankings - Around the Arch
December 2012 Issue
UGA climbed two spots this year in U.S. News & World Report’s 2013 edition of America’s Best Colleges, ranking 21st among the nation’s top public universities. The university also tied for 63rd in the category for best private and public universities. U.S. News & World Report surveyed 1,391 ranked colleges and universities, measuring an institution’s undergraduate academic reputation, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources, graduation rate performance (the difference between actual and predicted graduation rates) and alumni giving to determine rankings. Helping UGA in its national ranking was its average freshman retention rate of 94 percent. In 2011, the university’s graduation rate was predicted to be 77 percent but was actually higher at 83 percent. In the same year, 39 percent of UGA classes had less than 20 students while only 11 percent had more than 50, and 93 percent of UGA faculty were considered full time.
