Baylor University is ranked No. 79 among National Universities - with several programs and opportunities for undergraduates highly rated - in the latest rankings for 2020 released today by U.S. News & World Report. The ranking takes into account student success and learning by including the results of the Times Higher Education U.S. Student Survey.

These rankings come on the heels of Wabash being named one of the best institutions for undergraduate education by the Princeton Review in its 2020 listing of the top 385 schools nationally, ranking No. 3 for the "Most Accessible Professors" and No. 10 for "Professors Get High Marks". Northeastern University also tied with BU at 40th, up from No. 44 last year - and Brandeis also shared the 40th spot, slipping from its 35th place last year. It ranked seventh in U.S. News' list of top public schools and 34th among all universities.

FSU is ranked No. 18 in the outlet's listing of Top 25 public institutions.

Meanwhile, Olin College of Engineering in Needham ranked third on a list for the best undergraduate engineering programs, and Babson College in Wellesley ranked first in the entrepreneurship category.

The University of Florida was the best Florida school on the list, coming in at #34 in the nation.

Cal Poly's undergraduate engineering program is a clear victor.

On September 9, the publication released its annual 2020 Best Colleges report, comparing almost 1,400 schools around the country. Florida International University was right behind it at No. 12. And it's fourth on the magazine's list of national universities that offer students the best value, based on the school's ranking and the net cost of attendance for a student who received the average level of need-based financial aid, and other variables. The Columbia campus also is home to the National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition, the internationally recognized expert for scholarship, policy and best practice for all postsecondary student transitions. Rutgers University ranked fourth in this category. Northwestern, Duke, and Johns Hopkins finish out the schools ranked in the top 10, with Duke and Johns Hopkins tied for No. 10. The University had remained at the 8th position since 2015 except for a blip in 2018, when Duke fell to ninth after being overtaken by Penn.

UF also ranks third in the nation for technology transfer - getting its ideas out of the lab and into the real world - ahead of schools such as Stanford, MIT and Cal tech, as well as the entire University of Texas System, according to the Milken Institute.
