University of Delhi and University of Mumbai have left two top IITs behind to grab a spot in the top 500 universities in the QS Graduate Employability Ranking.

The rankings are based on a variety of metrics ranging from graduation rates, to faculty information and reputation as determined by academic peers.

The university's rise in the rankings came as KU has increased graduation rates in recent years.

"That our graduates are in high demand in the job market is also a great testament to our outstanding faculty and staff", Young continues. Luzerne County oldest college and newest university is in a six-way tie for 41 place with 63 overall points. It is also ranked in the 201-250 category globally alongside Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IITM) in the QS Graduate Employability Rankings.

USC Upstate was ranked No. 2 for regional public colleges, the No. 2 regional college for veterans and the No. 6 college for ethnic diversity.

Coutinho has not featured for Liverpool this season due to a reported back injury. Klopp says that he is set for Champions League duty this week.

For smaller regional institutions like Misericordia University, name recognition plays a negative factor in the rankings.

In the 2017 list, FSU ranked No. 38 and in 2016, placed No. 43.

Rankings are based on several indicators, including graduation and retention rates, quality of professors, SAT scores of admitted students, acceptance rate, per-student spending and how much alumni donate to the school.

Gov. Greg Abbott has said he wants to see five Texas universities among the nation's top 10 public schools. "Uncovering new talents and honing their abilities through opportunities such as undergraduate research and specialized leadership programs allow TU students to thrive in college, in their careers and in the world", he said.

Furman also was listed in "A+ Schools for B Students" and the list of colleges that "Focus on Student Success" in the category of undergraduate research/creative projects. Only schools in the top half of the U.S. News Best Colleges ranking are included because U.S. News considers the most significant values to be among colleges that perform well academically.

The top 10 public schools in the USA are Cal-Berkeley, UCLA, Virginia, Michigan, North Carolina, William & Mary, Georgia Tech, Cal-Santa Barbara, Cal-Irvine and Cal-San Diego.

This is the 35th year that U.S. News has issued these "Best College" ranks.

This fall, HPU opens Congdon Hall, the university's single largest investment in history at $120 million.

U.S. News' rankings have been both lauded by some - mostly colleges that do well and their alumni - and criticized by others who say the rankings are subjective, subject to manipulation and largely ignored by most students.
