Christian Brothers University Named Among "America's Best Colleges"

According to the 2012 edition of U.S. News and World Report's "America's Best Colleges," Christian Brothers University (CBU) ranked  24th in the category of best Southern universities. In addition to that honor, the private school founded in 1871 is ranked fourth in diversity among its peers. That means that  students at CBU are most likely to meet undergraduates different from themselves. CBU also was selected as an "A+ Option for B Students," recognizing that the school's faculty and environment help good students move toward excellence.

The annual report represents a  comprehensive look at how schools measure up based on 16  indicators of excellence. The categories were created by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, and the rankings are an invaluable resource to students and their parents.

Other publications naming CBU among the best are The Princeton Review and Forbes. The school currently serves students from 29 states and 18 countries. In 1875, it was the first university in Memphis  to award a college degree.
