DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ7) The latest U.S. News and World Report College Rankings are out and Averett University in Danville has moved up on several lists!
Averett is now considered the number 17 best regional liberal arts college in the south.
Only three Virginia schools made that list, with Averett being ranked the highest of the three.
Averett was also the only Virginia school to rank among the Best Value Schools and Best Colleges for Veterans.
"It's something to point to that validates us externally. We can tell a lot of wonderful stories. Our students tell even better stories than we do, but having that recognition is really important," says Averett's Vice President for Enrollment Management, Stacy Gato.
