There have been some major shifts on the annual list of top HBCUs!
U.S. News & World Report ran the numbers, and announced its list of the best Historicially Black Colleges and Universities. To make the list an institution must be an undergrad, baccalaureate-granting school that has already made the general list of Best College rankings for 2015.
Hampton, which didn’t even make the top 25 last year, has sprung up to #4 on the list. Unfortunately, not every school was able to improve or maintain their position. Clark Atlanta sank to #18 on the list, which is way down from its spot on last year’s list at #9.
Scroll down to check out the top 25 schools on the list (give or take a few). There are a few ties on the rundown, but these are the institutions that have made it to the head of class.
