Pennsylvania College of Technology has earned its best-ever ranking in the 2017 U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges compilation.

Penn College is ranked seventh among public colleges (and tied for 13th overall, when private institutions are included) in the Regional Colleges North category.

According to the Best Colleges rankings materials, regional colleges “focus almost entirely on the undergraduate experience and offer a broad range of programs in the liberal arts (which account for fewer than half of bachelor’s degrees granted) and in fields such as business, nursing and education.”

The information for the 2017 Best Colleges rankings was collected during Spring and Summer 2016 through U.S. News’ annual statistical survey of colleges.

The annual rankings were announced Tuesday by the publication. Most of the rankings will be included in a “Best Colleges 2017” guidebook, which can be purchased online and in retail outlets on Oct. 4.
