Winston-Salem, NC-- A Triad College has made the Forbes magazine list, as one of the top 650 colleges and universities in the nation.
Salem College made the list at number 141 overall. Salem was also ranked number 123 among private colleges and number 36 among colleges in the South, and claimed the highest ranking of women's colleges in the Southeast.
Forbes ranks schools based on criteria important to students-quality of teaching, great career prospects, graduation rates and low levels of debt. The rankings are based on five general categories: post graduate success, which evaluates alumni pay and prominence; student satisfaction, which includes professor evaluations and freshman to sophomore year retention rates; debt, which penalizes schools for high student debt loads and default rates; four year graduation rate and competitive awards, which rewards schools whose students win prestigious scholarships and fellowships.
Founded in 1772, Salem is the nation's oldest continually operating institution for women, offering 35 undergraduate majors for women, coeducational graduate studies and programs for men and women ages 23 and over via the Fleer Center for Adult Education.
