Forbes Names Lebanon Valley to “America’s Top Colleges”
10.02.13 |
Forbes has again named Lebanon Valley College to its 2013 list of “America’s Top Colleges,” “Best Private Colleges,” and among the best in the Northeast.

Forbes has partnered exclusively with the Center for College Affordability and Productivity to produce its list. According to writer Caroline Howard, “What sets our calculation of 650 colleges and universities apart from other rankings is our firm belief in ‘output’ over ‘input.’ We’re not all that interested in what gets a student into college, like our peers who focus heavily on selectivity metrics such as high school class rank and SAT scores. Our sights are set directly on ROI: What are students getting out of college.”

The rankings are based on five general categories: post-graduate success, which evaluates alumni pay and prominence; student satisfaction, which includes professor evaluations and freshman to sophomore year retention rates; debt, which penalizes schools for high student debt loads and default rates; four-year graduation rate; and competitive awards, which rewards schools whose students win prestigious scholarships and fellowships like the Rhodes, the Marshall, and the Fulbright, or go on to earn a Ph.D.

Lebanon Valley’s ranking was positively influenced by the College’s 86 percent freshman to sophomore retention rate, 97 percent institutional aid award rate, and its student-faculty ratio of 13:1.
