Fresno Pacific University continues rise in U.S. News rankings
Fresno Pacific University continues to climb in the 2013 U.S. News & World Report rankings of American colleges and universities released September 9, 2014.
Long a top-tier institution in its category, FPU is up two spots to number 40 among regional universities west, which covers 15 states. The university’s rise in the ratings started in 2013 when U.S. News revised its formula to increase the emphasis on whether students graduate, rather than who gets admitted. That year FPU jumped 40 spots.
