College Consensus ranks Alfred State No. 5 in the North

College Consensus, a unique new college ratings website, recently ranked Alfred State College (ASC) No. 5 in its list of the Best Regional Colleges in the North for 2018, and as the top regional college among all State University of New York (SUNY) schools.

Prospective students want to hear first-hand from students to find out what it is really like on campus. College Consensus confirms that ASC is highly valued by existing students. When it comes to the Student Consensus rating, Alfred State’s score of 75 ranks ASC best in New York among all public colleges and universities of any size. 

“We are delighted at the recent College Consensus rankings, particularly because they consider student feedback as one of the two main components of their scores,” said Alfred State President Dr. Skip Sullivan. “Students are at the forefront of everything we do at Alfred State, and we strive to make their college experience the best it can be. Therefore, to receive such positive responses from our students is extremely gratifying.”

Out of nearly 50 schools in the 11-state northern region, a College Consensus score of 61.5 places ASC fifth best, and the No. 1 public regional college in the north.

Taking a new approach to college rankings, College Consensus combines the latest results from the most respected college ranking systems such as US News & World Report and the WalletHub Best Colleges Ranking with thousands of real student review scores from sources around the web such as Niche and My Plan to produce an aggregate rating for each school. Among the criteria taken into consideration are academic reputation, student satisfaction, affordability, and social mobility for students to achieve more than their parents,
