    The University of Scranton placed at No. 7 among the “Best Catholic Colleges and Universities” in the nation in a new ranking that combines an average score from respected national publication rankings with an average score based on student reviews posted online. The 2018 ranking, published online by College Consensus, includes some of the most prestigious Catholic universities in America.

    Scranton was the highest ranked Catholic university in Pennsylvania.

    For the ranking, College Consensus calculated an “average rating score” for colleges based on national guidebook rankings, which include U.S. News & World Report, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal and others. College Consensus also calculated an “overall score” for colleges based on student reviews posted on multiple sites, including Niche.com. The “consensus ranking” combined both these scores.

    The University of Scranton is ranked in all the above-mentioned publications, in addition to numerous other national “best college” rankings. U.S. News has ranked Scranton among the top 10 “Best Regional Universities in the North” for 24 consecutive years.
