Florida State was recently rewarded for their continuing effort to enter the top 25 public universities in the country. The US News and World Report released their newest rankings for the best colleges in the country and rated Florida State University as the No. 40 best school among public universities. This is an improvement over last year’s ranking of No. 42 and marks a significant jump from FSU’s No. 46 ranking two years ago.

Florida State’s plan to join the top 25 public universities in the country by these rankings was part of President Eric Barron’s proposal to Gov. Rick Scott to grant FSU preeminence. Scott approved and appropriated million to FSU for the next five years to assist their effort to join the top 25 public universities. During that same time, the University of Florida made a similar proposal, asking for preeminence on the condition they strive to join the top 10 public universities. In the latest rankings, UF comes in as the No. 14 best school among public universities.

Among all private and public schools, Florida State increased their ranking from No. 97 to No. 91. This national universities category includes 281 institutions (173 public, 101 private and seven for-profit). Additionally, Florida State was honored by US News & World Report in a category called “A+ Schools for B Students.” In a press release from the university, FSU Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs Garnett S. Stokes indicated that this category reflects Florida State’s commitment to the excellence of all of their students. The release also notes that incoming freshmen last fall had a 4.0 GPA on average during high school.

Florida State is not alone in their newest No. 40 ranking, as public universities such as Auburn University, the Colorado School of Mines and University of Massachusetts-Amherst share the No. 40 spot with FSU.

Leaders at the university have stressed that these rankings hold as much meanings to those applying for schools as those graduating the university.

“I think that it’s encouraging as well as a lot of recent graduates to know that their university is putting in so much work in the back end to ensure that when they graduate they they’re not just graduating with any other piece of paper,” SGA President Rosie Contreras said. “It’s going to mean something.”

In a previous interview with the FSView and Florida Flambeau, Barron echoed a similar sentiment, noting that these rankings impact FSU graduates and their ability to acquire a job.

“Even though the person on paper might be very similar to someone that comes from Florida State, and even the Florida State student might be stronger, but the employer is going to look at the same thing [and say], ‘Oh, this is a name brand here. That student must be a better student, must be a better employee, because look they went to Berkeley.’”

Barron could not be reached for new comment on the improved rankings as he is out of the state until Friday when he will return for the Board of Trustees meeting held on the same day.

Although the improvement could be a considered a small one, Contreras emphasized that the administration is doing all they can to improve the quality of education at Florida State. What holds FSU from making significant leaps isn’t the “graduation rates” or the “enrich undergrad experience for FSU students,” according to Contreras, but the resources available to the university.

“Because so much of our budget is tied inherently to the fiscal situation of the state that is obviously going to hold us back in terms of making that big jump from 42 to 27, for example,” Contreras said. “To me, I think it’s a positive reaffirmation that the direction we’re heading in is a good one.”
