Schreyer Among Country’s Top Seven Honors Colleges

Schreyer Honors College has received some high honors.

Schreyer is one of only seven public honors colleges to receive a five-star ranking from the Public University Press’ 342-page review of the country’s best. The rankings are based on submitted data about honors graduation rates, class sizes, course range and type, honors dorms, and other honors benefits, including merit scholarships.

The PUP went with a mortarboard system as opposed to a regular ranking. Of the 50 universities it reviewed, seven received the top rating, as Penn State joined Arizona State, Kansas, Michigan, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia. When the organization ranked the best public honors colleges two years ago, Schreyer did not crack the top 10.

It’s nice to see a good national academic review for Penn State after it strangely dropped 11 spots in the U.S. News & World Report’s rankings this summer. It’s also been a good year for Schreyer, which is making some big accomplishments.
