“No college in America has come so far so fast, and the data continue to prove it,” says President Paul Trible. “Six years ago, we ranked 9th among all public regional universities in the South, and that was a huge achievement for a school so young. Today we rank 4th! We are one of the very best colleges in America because we have a rigorous academic curriculum, a great faculty, outstanding students and we emphasize leadership, civic engagement and honor.”
