Tue, Aug 17 2010
LeTourneau University has again ranked in the top tier nationally in the U.S. News and World Report’s annual rankings of “America’s Best Colleges.”
LeTourneau University is ranked in the top 10 among private schools in Texas and above all state universities in Texas in the same category. LETU is ranked 35th among all of the Best Universities — Master’s in the Western Region in the 2011 U.S. News rankings.
For 17 years, the university has been listed in the magazine’s top tier rankings. U.S. News ranks colleges and universities among other schools with similar programs and degree offerings. Indicators used to determine the rankings include small class sizes, high SAT and ACT scores of incoming freshmen, the student-to-faculty ratio, average graduation rates and assessments by administrators at other peer universities.
“We are always pleased to receive national recognition for our quality academic programs,” said LETU President Dr. Dale A. Lunsford. “We believe new programs in air traffic control, nursing and civil engineering will only increase our national recognition in the future.”
