University of NC Wilmington Listed Among Most Efficient Universities in America

UNCW was recently ranked #4 among schools in the South region of America by the U.S. News & World Report list of the country’s “most efficient” colleges and universities!  “Most Efficient Universities” were based on schools that scored well for undergraduate educational quality in the magazine’s 2015 Best Colleges Rankings but that spent relatively less on their educational programs to achieve that quality.

The University of North Carolina at Wilmington is a very popular destination for college bound students not just because it is next to Wrightsville Beach but because it provides a top level education with small student: professor ratios, public school prices, and offers:  55 bachelor’s degrees in 49 majors, 42 master degree programs, Ph.D. in marine biology, and Ed.D in educational leadership and administration.
