Rankings

As long as US universities are concerned, the rankings which are provided by Forbes and US News are trusted everywhere. The ranking of a college is an important parameter by which a prospective student can decide whether they wish to take admission or not. Generally, the ranking of a college is considered a great way to gauge its performance 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 Salem College does not feature in the list of top colleges, according to the latest ranking by these publications.
