UCSB Ranked 15th in Nation

UCSB ranked 15th among national universities in an annual listing published 8/25 in the Washington Monthly. Based on a number of factors like graduating low-income students and producing top-notch researchers, the magazine’s editors prioritized 277 colleges, giving higher rankings to public schools than to private ones. UCSB is up seven spots from last year, but it fell behind University of California campuses at San Diego, Riverside, Berkeley, and Los Angeles, which all landed in the top five. According to the magazine, UCSB has an 80 percent graduation rate, and 35 percent of students receive federal grants.
