Scripps College Ranks High on Forbes’ Best Colleges List

CLAREMONT, Calif. (July 30, 2014) — Forbes Magazine has named Scripps College one of America’s top colleges for the seventh consecutive year, placing it 69th on its list of 100 institutions praised for academic excellence.

The award marks the third from Forbes this year; Scripps was also recently awarded 59th best private college and 11th in the West.

Results come from a rigorous five-part metric devised between the magazine and the Center for College Affordability and Productivity. The criteria, which include student satisfaction, post-graduate success, graduation rate, academic success, and debt load, are geared toward return on investment – what students get out of their college. Scripps has always appeared on Forbes‘ list since the magazine first released its national college rankings in 2008.

Scripps also ranks highly among other major awards, including US News & World Report, The Princeton Review, and Kiplinger’s. For a complete listing, click here.
