EUGENE, Ore., April 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published a ranking of the 25 Best Colleges in Wisconsin for 2017.
Wisconsin, home to the "Wisconsin Idea" that universities should not only educate, but provide a public service in research and policy, offers a bevy of colleges that aim to do just that. In order to help students comb through the many colleges in Wisconsin, College Choice has put together this ranking to help them sort through their options.
"Wisconsin has two large public college systems: the 26-campus University of Wisconsin System, as well as the 16-campus Wisconsin Technical College System," Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice, said of the ranking. "Those alone give you a broad array to choose from, but don't pass over the many private schools the state has to offer. Even if you think they're too expensive, you might be surprised by how much aid they hand out. You never know!"
College Choice developed its list by looking at academic quality along with return on investment—the differential between tuition costs and average early career earnings.
The ranking for the 25 Best Colleges in Wisconsin finds University of Wisconsin-Madison in the top spot. Ripon College is in second, and Marquette University rounds out the top three.
The entire ranking, listed in alphabetical order, is as follows:
Cardinal Stritch University
Milwaukee School of Engineering
Mount Mary University
Saint Norbert College
University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire
University of Wisconsin-La Crosse
University of Wisconsin-Madison
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh
