Cedar Crest named Top College by U.S. News & World Report

For the seventh year in a row, Cedar Crest College has been named among the top colleges in the nation by U.S. News and World Report’s Best College Rankings, 2018.

Among colleges in the northern region, Cedar Crest is ranked the sixth Best Regional College, the second Best Value School and the second Best College for Veterans. The college has been named a Top Regional College and Best Value College every year since 2012, and was named a Best College for Veterans in 2015 and 2016.

“We are proud to rank among the best colleges in the nation,” said Interim President Elizabeth Meade. “The fact that Cedar Crest consistently makes this list demonstrates our dedication to providing the very best education to our students, setting them up for a lifetime of continued success.”

In addition to the U.S. News & World Report ranking, Cedar Crest was also recognized for its student engagement by the Wall Street Journal this year, and was named a “Best College for Your Money” by MONEY Magazine. In 2017, Cedar Crest’s registered nursing program was ranked second in the nation by the Community for Accredited Online Schools.
