According to the US News Rankings, Harvard University has been ranked #1 and “America’s Best University.”
The number one Ivy league was running close to Princeton and even shared the number one spot with them last year, but ended up beating them out by one point. This years list was dominated by Ivy League schools which included Harvard, Princeton, Yale and Columbia, who took the top four positions.
Every year the US News rankings rank all 4 year colleges, which are judged by their faculty, subject matter and campus life. Other mentionable colleges that made the list were non ivy league contenders such as University of Pennsylvania, Stanford and Columbia University in New York.
