Penn State Ranked No. 2 Public School In The Northeast

Why stop at #DominateTheState when you can #DominateTheNortheast? Penn State was ranked the No. 2 public college in the Northeast by the Wall Street Journal.

The rankings were conducted by the Wall Street Journal and the Times Higher Education College. There were four categories that were considered when comparing schools. The categories included resources, engagement, outcomes, and environment. Besides the four categories, there were 15 individual performance factors that were taken into consideration.

Colleges were separated by location and then divided between public and private institutions. Schools within the same region and university-type were then compared and ranked to compile the Top-10 schools across the Northeast.

Penn State and Rutgers were the only two Northeast Big Ten schools to break the Top 10. The Rutgers New Brunswick campus was ranked third, and the Rutgers Newark campus was ranked seventh.

Overall, Penn State was ranked No. 96 overall in the nation. The final score for the university was a 68.1 (out of 100). It scored 28.2/40 in the outcomes category, 17.9/30 in the resources category, 16.7/20 in the engagement category, and a 5.4/10 in the environment category.

Unfortunately we must note that Penn State came in second only to Pitt. We don’t want to say that they bested three out of the four categories on the list for the Northeast. We are literally gritting our teeth writing this. Please don’t tell your Pitt friends. We are putting this part in the bottom down here so no Pitt fans see it because haven’t we already¬†given them enough this year?
