New College of Florida named one of the “50 Underrated Colleges Doing Great Things”

From Collegeconsensus. com   November 2018

There are some colleges and universities that command all of the attention in any discussion of higher education: the Ivy League, the flagship public universities, the prestigious private research institutions, the elite liberal arts colleges. But unfortunately, those big guns too often overshadow the underrated colleges and universities that are doing great things – innovating, experimenting, or even just serving students in a way that deserves to be noticed.

Oftentimes, it’s the small or less prominent colleges that are the most creative, making programs and initiatives that are worth imitating, emulating, and spreading far and wide. Those are the schools and programs that College Consensus wants to highlight in the Top 50 Underrated Colleges Doing Great Things.
