We have to crawl before we can walk, I will take it as long as we keep moving in the right direction:

Still cannot believe Nova and FAMU is ranked ahead of us. But us finally being ranked is very good news.

Most of these rankings are usually political, however; I have noticed FIU has been rubbing the right elbows lately.

Anyhow, I think its awesome we are now getting some national recognition. :D

I think in 10 or a few more years, FIU will be at a better position.

Finally!!! Congrats to FIU for achieving this distinction. And it is not like we debuted at the bottom of the 311 school list. We will break top 200 next year, and continue to climb the rankings! Not worried about Nova at FAMU, we will jump ahead of them next year.

FAU continues to be unranked. Dirty owls, sigue mamandomelo, pájaros de MIERDA.

Florida’s universities are gaining ground in the closely watched U.S. News & World Report rankings.

Nine universities in the state made this year’s list of 230 top National Colleges, up from seven last year.


Quote:
-- Florida International University in Miami and Florida A&M University in Tallahassee were ranked for the first time this year, with FIU placing at 216 and FAMU at 207.

Quote:
Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton remained unranked this year.

Quote:
Two South Florida schools also showed progress: NSU was ranked for the first time last year, with FIU joining this year.

FIU improved this year in alumni giving and selectivity. More high school counselors and administrators at other colleges gave the school good ratings this year. And although its graduation rate (56 percent) didn’t improve, the school benefited from a change in how these were measured.

“We don’t have many universities in South Florida that have rankings in U.S. News & World Report, so we’re very proud of the fact that we’re moving up, and we expect to continue to improve in the rankings,” FIU Provost Kenneth Furton said.
