La Sierra Ranked One of U.S. News Best Colleges

U.S. News & World Report has ranked La Sierra University as one of America’s Best Colleges in its 2015 rankings. The magazine’s muchanticipated rankings were released to the public on September 9. This is the 30th edition of U.S. News’ annual college rankings, widely considered among the most influential in the field.
La Sierra rose 32 spots this year in the Regional Universities: West category. The category includes 121 universities, both public and private, from Texas to Alaska.
Rankings are based on extensive data submitted annually by each institution. Among the factors considered are class size, faculty qualification, admission selectivity, reputation among peers, financial resources, retention rate, alumni support, and graduation rate, both expected and actual.
La Sierra University saw improved scores in graduation and retention rates, peer assessment by administrators at other schools, class size, student-to-faculty ratio, and student selectivity.
“We are very pleased to be ranked among America’s best colleges,” says La Sierra’s president, Randal Wisbey. “We are especially proud of the finding that our students graduate at a higher rate than expected.”
