UNC Named as One of the Top 3 Schools in the Nation!

Living in student apartments near UNC Chapel Hill just became a little more prestigious. The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education College Rankings list is out for 2020 and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill ranked third among the top public universities. This ranking means the Tar Heels are considered to be in the top 10% of colleges that offer the best value nationwide.

The Times Higher Education receives over 200,000 responses from current college students when conducting the annual U.S. Student Survey. There are 15 performance indicator questions that students are asked to answer. The survey is designed to ask questions that matter most to students and their families, such as:

  1. Is the campus community diverse?
  2. What type of access will I have to my professors?
  3. What resources does the university provide?
  4. How many years do students spend at the college? What is the graduation rate?
  5. Are there any recruitment programs available to help me get a good job upon graduation?
  6. What is the average student loan debt carried by graduating students?

There are over 1,000 universities considered in the ranking process. For more than 15 consecutive years, UNC-Chapel Hill has ranked high in the best value for public universities. The high score that UNC receives is a reflection of their academic reputation and exceptional student experience. Compared to the rest of the country, the school has a high graduation rate. Students typically graduate with low debt and are offered competitive salaries from prospective employers.

The Student Survey showed that UNC students feel their investment was well worth it based upon their college experience. They also stated that they are happy with their decision to attend UNC and would choose to go there again.
