Harding University has been recognized in two categories by College Consensus, a unique, comprehensive new college review aggregator, in its survey of top-ranked schools for 2018. The University ranked No. 6 on the list of Best Regional Universities in the South and No. 9 on the list of Best Christian Colleges and Universities in the nation.
To identify top colleges, College Consensus combines the latest results from the most respected college rankings lists, such as U.S. News & World Report and Forbes, and thousands of student reviews found on websites including Cappex and Niche. Harding’s publishers’ rating of 60.5 was combined with a student rating of 76.3 for a consensus rating of 68.4.
“College Consensus’ method brings together the colleges and universities that have the best schools ranking based on publisher and student ratings, all arranged regardless of size, location, form or classification,” says Carrie Sealey-Morris, managing editor of College Consensus. “It’s not mixing apples and oranges — it’s crunching the numbers, pure and simple, to see which colleges the experts admire, and which ones the students love.”
Harding ranked No. 2 on College Consensus’ 2017-18 list of Best Colleges and Universities in the state of Arkansas, published last fall.
“Like Rotten Tomatoes or Metacritic does for movies, College Consensus gathers the publisher rankings and student reviews from around the web and distills the results into simple, easy to understand scores so students can quickly and easily compare schools,” said College Consensus founder Jeremy Alder. “It is the ranking of all rankings, so to speak.”
