Rankings

The ranking of a particular college helps a student decide where to apply, which is always a tough decision. The two popular publications, US News and Forbes, are among the most trusted publications when it comes to the rankings of an educational institution. The ranking of a college plays an important role in helping a prospective candidate choosing the right college. It helps them assess the college's performance based on several factors, which include research excellence, the performance of the students after they complete their education, student experience, and most importantly academic success. However, it is to be noted that Huntingdon College does not feature in the list of top colleges, according to the latest rankings by these two publications.
