Lee University has once again been ranked in the “top tier” in the 2014 “Best Colleges” edition of U.S. News & World Report.  The rankings were announced in a special issue on Tuesday. 

“We’re happy with the results this year,” said Lee Director of Public Information Brian Conn.  “It’s another signal that we are moving in the right direction, and we know these are rankings people pay attention to when looking for colleges.” 

Over 1,600 colleges and universities nationwide are part of the USN&WR rankings, which have become a popular feature of college life each autumn. 

In the rankings, Lee is considered a “regional university.”  The 621 regional universities are split into four regions: North, South, Midwest and West. These schools offer a full range of undergrad programs, some master's programs and few doctoral programs. Regional Universities include Villanova University, The Citadel, Butler University, and Gonzaga University. 

The rankings for 2014 can be found at the following link www.usnews.com/colleges.
