By MSU Public Relations
MURRAY - Murray State University has again been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top schools in the country.

The rankings list includes Murray State as one of the best universities, marking the institution's 30th consecutive year of top-tier rankings by the reputable college guide.

Murray State was ranked 26th in the "Best Regional Universities in the South" category and is the highest-ranked regional public university in Kentucky. Murray State also ranked 11th among peer institutions in the "Top Public Regional Universities in the South" category. The University scored highly and increased its ranking from last year in the "best value school" category, and was also listed regionally as a best college for veterans. 

Murray State was also recognized in the "A-plus Schools for B Students" category, an accolade very much connected with the University's impressive first-to-second year student retention rate, which is currently 80.8 percent.

Both the University's undergraduate engineering program and business programs ranked again on the U.S. News & World Report list for 2021.

The U.S. News & World Report methodology encompasses attributes such as graduation and retention rates, quality of faculty, academic reputation, financial resources for students, student excellence measured by standardized tests and alumni giving, among other metrics.
