World News ReportLa Plume – For the sixth consecutive year, Keystone College has been ranked as one of the nation’s best colleges in U.S. News and World Report.

Keystone finished in the top tier, ranked 44th in the North in the “Regional Colleges” category in the magazine’s annual “Best Colleges” edition. Keystone scored particularly well in the category which lists small class sizes. The magazine reported that 80 percent of Keystone’s classes have less than 20 students, one of the top rankings of all schools in the Best Regional Colleges category.    

U.S. News and World report categorizes regional colleges as those that “focus almost entirely on the undergraduate experience and offer a broad range of programs in the liberal arts.” A select group of schools included in the category were grouped according to regions of the country (North, South, Midwest, and West).

“We are once again very proud that Keystone College has been listed in U.S. News and World Report as one of the nation’s best college’s for the sixth consecutive year,” said Keystone College President Dr. Edward G. Boehm, Jr. “The ranking is a tribute to the tremendous dedication and ongoing accomplishments of our students, faculty and staff.”

In addition to the U.S. News and World Report rankings, Keystone has also achieved national prominence in several other publications. It has been ranked as one of the nation’s top schools for commitment to the environment by the Princeton Review and Sierra Magazine and as one of the best schools in the nation for soldiers and veterans by G.I. Jobs magazine and Advanced Military Education magazine. Keystone was also named a College of Distinction by Student Horizons, Inc., a national company which provides important information about higher education to high school students and their parents.
