Rose-Hulman’s academic diversity, educational experiences, and career prospects earned a No. 7 ranking among America’s best undergraduate colleges by SuccessfulStudent.org, a new online resource for college-bound high school students and their parents.

The 20 Best Undergraduate Colleges 2014 examines colleges from a student’s perspective— how the student is educated and enriched by the college experience. A college’s return on investment is also a major variable in the ranking process.

 “If your goal is to leave college with either an extremely marketable degree or the opportunity to research science at a world-leading graduate institution, you will be hard pressed to find a more reputable place to study,” states SuccessfulStudent.org’s Rose-Hulman profile. “Rose-Hulman has set out to be the leading undergraduate center for science and engineering, and for years the rankings have agreed.”

Rose-Hulman was also cited for its state-of-the-art laboratories and classrooms, along with its innovative science, engineering, and mathematics curriculums.

“(Rose-Hulman) equips its students with everything they need to be on the forefront of new technology,” stated the service.
