Augsburg College ranked in U.S. News and World Report’s "America’s Best Colleges 2006"

The U.S. News and World Report’s annual ranking of "America’s Best Colleges" has been published, and Augsburg College is ranked 26th in the category of Midwestern Universities – Master’s Top Schools. Schools within this category produce a full range of undergraduate and master’s level programs. Among the key criteria in judging were highest graduation rate and highest proportion of classes of fewer than 20.

Augsburg College was also one of only 43 schools in the nation to be selected in the category of First-Year Experience and one of only 42 in the category of Service Learning. Both of these distinctions fall under the Academic Programs to Watch For, recognizing “outstanding examples of academic programs that are believed to lead to student success.”
