Second West Point Story of the Day

A press release from West Point's public affairs office:
A report released today by U.S. News & World Report's 2012 edition of Best Colleges ranked the U.S. Military Academy first in its Top 10 Public Colleges category.

“We are very pleased with U.S. News & World Report’s recognition of the quality of the educational experience at West Point,” said Dean of the Academic Board, Brig. Gen. Timothy Trainor. “We are very proud of our nationally renowned education program and attribute much of our success to such factors as accessibility of faculty, lively classroom discussions and experiences, and enrichment opportunities outside the classroom.”

In the Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs category, West Point was ranked No. 3 overall, with our Civil Engineering Program ranked No. 2.
We're not ranked as highly in football.
