University of Oregon ranked in top 50 best public colleges

Can’t we all agree that we deserve better?

As if we needed reminding how great Oregon is, we have officially been declared as one of the 103rd best university in America.

US News and World Report has just released their annual ranking of American colleges, placing up us in the top 150. The list includes the best 300 schools.

Can't wait for bingo, brews, @breezus____'s dollars blackout & bffs!!!!!

We beat our rival school Oregon State, but underneath UCLA.

Coming as no surprise, Princeton, Harvard and UChicago all took the top three spots.

US News base their rankings on graduate outcomes (year-by-year completion and graduation rates), the number of students receiving Pell Grants, faculty resources, student satisfaction, financial resources, expert opinion, student excellence and alumni giving.

No wonder we made it as one of the best colleges in America, we gained a Nobel Prize laureate in the phyiscs department this summer, and hosted Academy Award-winning deaf actress Marlee Matlin.
