Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) has once again been listed among “America’s Top Colleges” by Forbes Magazine. The Magazine’s release of its annual rankings also reveals that FAMU not only returned on its list of best colleges in the South but also now appears on its lists for best research universities and best public colleges.
Universities and colleges appearing on the Forbes lists are recognized for providing their students with the best return-on-investment. “America’s Top Colleges” are judged in such categories as student satisfaction, post-graduate success, academic success, career success, nationally competitive awards, student debt, retention, and graduation rates.
The ranking system was prepared exclusively for Forbes by the Center for College Affordability and Productivity, a Washington, D.C., think tank founded by Ohio University economist Richard Vedder.
“The University is excited to be recognized among the nation’s top universities,” said President Elmira Mangum, Ph.D. “The additional recognition as a best college in the South, and the acknowledgment of our work as a research institution and public university speaks volumes about the united efforts of the FAMU community to move forward in realizing our vision of being a best-in-class university with a global impact.”
