For the sixth year in a row, Wagner College appears on the Forbes America’s Top Colleges list. This is the eleventh year Forbes has produced the list, which was released Aug. 21.
“Forbes' list of 650 top colleges aims to measure what we believe students care about most,” write Forbes Top Colleges 2018 editors Susan Adams and Carter Coudriet. “Where will a college steer them in their life after graduation? How likely are they to find success in their chosen field, to earn enough money to pay their student debt, to win accolades like Pulitzer Prizes and Fulbright scholarships, to become leaders in private and public life? How effectively does their school support them so they can graduate within four or six years and join the workforce?”
Wagner College ranked number 354 out of 650 on the Forbes 2018 Top Colleges list. Among the 66 colleges and universities in New York state that made it onto the Forbes list, Wagner ranked 42nd — ahead of RIT, Pace and the Pratt Institute.
Wagner College was top ranked among the three colleges on Staten Island.
