Ohio University was named the best value among state public universities for the second year in a row by US News and World Report.
The latest rankings from the publication indicate that the OHIO is the 116e best value for money in America, and 30e among the country’s public universities.
Overall, Ohio University ranked 88e among the best public schools in America and 179e among the best national institutions, fourth best in Ohio.
“Ohio University provides our students with a valuable education that delivers a significant return on investment,” said Hugh Sherman, president of Ohio University. “Our exceptional academic programs and dedicated student services help our students succeed now and in their future.”
OHIO was once again on US News’ A + for B student list, which includes institutions that admitted a significant proportion of students who did not earn an A directly in high school as of fall 2020 and have maintained a high retention rate year after year. OHIO was also on the list of top colleges for veterans, at 112e nationally.
Several OHIO programs have also been ranked nationwide, including:
- Undergraduate Business Programs (tied for 143rd)
- Undergraduate Engineering Programs (tied for 147e)
- Undergraduate Computer Science Programs (tied for 154e)
- Undergraduate nursing programs (tied for 183rd)
The ranking follows recent news that OHIO celebrates a larger, more diverse, and more accomplished freshman class for fall 2021, learning on one of the the most beautiful university campuses in America.
