Top 10 Smartest Colleges of 2013
Lumosity, a brain training and neuroscience research company, released its second annual ranking of the smartest students in America. They analyze 72,000 undergraduates’ results of their well-known brain exercises and training games to come up with their ranking. Obviously, this is just one of the many ways to come up with the rankings, but it’s still something to be proud of! Here are the top ten. Some of them will surprise you.
7. Rice University
Rice University is a private research university that makes it home in Houston, Texas. The high quality of student education can be attributed to one important factor: Student to faculty ratio. With a 5:1 ratio, it is one of the lowest in all of America, proving Rice’s emphasis on student learning above anything else. It seems to work, as 101 Fulbright Scholars, 11 Truman Scholars, 24 Marshall Scholars and 12 Rhodes Scholars have come out of the university.
