North Central College has been ranked among America’s Best Colleges by U.S. News & World Report for the 27th consecutive year. The annual U.S. News rankings are widely recognized as a marker of excellence in higher education. North Central ranked No. 19 out of 157 schools in the Best Regional Universities Midwest category. The College ranked highly in two other categories: No. 8 for Most Innovative Schools, which includes schools making “cutting edge” improvements on their campuses in the areas of curriculum, faculty, students, campus life, technology and facilities; and No. 15 for Best Undergraduate Teaching, which recognizes institutions with a strong commitment to teaching undergraduate students.
“For us to be such a top regional university integrated right now into downtown Naperville provides such amazing advantages to the college and town,” said Hammond.
