U.S. News & World Report ranks Wake Forest 30th
August 18, 2006
Wake Forest University ranks 30th among 248 national universities in the 2007 edition of U.S. News & World Report’s guide, “America’s Best Colleges.”
Wake Forest tied with two other schools for 27th place in last year’s edition and has been ranked in the top 30 in the national category since 1997. The university again fared well in categories such as graduation/retention rates and alumni giving rate.
The guide ranked Wake Forest’s Calloway School of Business and Accountancy 29th in its listing of the top undergraduate business programs along with five other schools. The ranking of the best business programs is based on a survey of deans and senior faculty at business schools across the country.
Wake Forest was ranked 39th on a list of “Great Schools, Great Prices.”
Wake Forest offers 36 majors to approximately 4,200 undergraduates. As mentioned in the U.S. News guide, more than half of Wake Forest classes have fewer than 20 students. Ninety-four percent of Wake Forest freshmen return for their sophomore year.
The U.S. News rankings will be posted on www.usnews.com at 12:01 a.m. Aug. 18. The newsstand book “America’s Best Colleges” and the weekly edition of U.S. News & World Report magazine containing some of the rankings will go on sale Aug. 21.
