Penn State Ranked No. 18 Public University In America

Unsurprisingly, Penn State is once again among the greatest universities in the country, according to Niche.com.

This past week, the rankings and reviews site published its yearly assessment of the United State’s universities and colleges. Overall, it gave Penn State an A+ ranking and named it the No. 82 overall college in the country. Niche also called Penn State the No. 18 public university and “big college” in the United States.

Additionally, Niche named Penn State the sixth-best student life college in the country. Only USC, UCLA, Wisconsin, Georgia, and Vanderbilt were favored over the Nittany Lions. Penn State also had a leg up on its rivals, beating out Michigan (7th), Ohio State (12th), and, of course, Pitt (53rd).

Penn State received three other top ten national rankings. The university was rated the seventh-best college for Information Technology, eighth-best for Greek life, and 10th-best for partying.

Happy Valley rules the state of Pennsylvania when it comes to Niche’s rankings. Penn State is the top school in six of the state’s 31 categories. Besides being the best party school and having the best student life and Greek life, Penn State also has the best campus and is considered the top public university in the state.

Niche only counts three universities in Pennsylvania as “big schools,” playing Penn State ahead of Pitt and Temple.

There weren’t too many demerits on Penn State’s report card. However, the university was low in the standings when it came to college dorms, sitting at No. 604 nationally.
