HAMPTON, Va. (Sept. 12, 2017) -- Hampton University has again been named as one of U.S. News & World Report’s top Historically Black College and Universities (HBCU) in its just-released 2018 Best Colleges report.
Hampton University, which garnered the No. 3 HBCU ranking, also was recognized as one of the top colleges for veterans (No. 14) and is among the best regional universities in the south (No. 21).
“We already know what a great university we have at Hampton University,” said Hampton Chancellor and Provost, Dr. JoAnn W. Haysbert. “I find it gratifying and an honor to be recognized by a widely-respected publication like U.S. News & World Report.”
Hampton University adds the USN&WR rankings, including a Best Value School and a listing on its Best Engineering Schools, to its long list of recognitions earlier this summer from The Princeton Review (one of its top colleges) and Money Magazine (best return on investment after graduation). While pleased, Dr. Haysbert said she will continue to push for the best possible education for every student at Hampton University.
