We're number 53!

Oh yeah! The new US News rankings are out. We're the 1st-ranked A-10 school among national universities (although Richmond is #33 in national liberal arts colleges). Take that, Fordham! (#61). SLU is at #80, UMass #102, Dayton #108, Duquesne #130. Other schools are ranked in regional categories, like St. Joe's (#8, Masters universities-North), La Salle (#17, same), St. Bona (#40, same), Xavier (#2, Masters-Midwest).

As for worst schools, Temple, UNC-Charlotte and URI are all tier 3 among national universities!

UNC Charlotte was actually tier four last year so we are definitely moving up, however we are ranked 9th under, "Best Colleges: Up and Coming National Universities"

I think the 49ers are doing alright considering we've existed little over 40 years as an actual university.
