CBU Garners Top Spots In State?

Riverside, Calif. (Nov. 13, 2015) – California Baptist University has received high rankings for programs and other offerings—including two "No. 1" recognitions—on websites that compare colleges and universities nationwide.

Niche.com and Christian Universities Online both included CBU in rankings released this month on numerous "Best" lists for 2016.

Niche ranked CBU No. 1 in California and No. 6 nationally for "Best College Food."  In the site's "Best College Campus" list, CBU placed No. 2 in California and No. 13 nationally.

Additionally, Niche ranked CBU No. 1 in California and No. 7 nationwide in its "Best College Dorms" list.

CBU placed No. 3 in the Niche list of "Best Christian Colleges" in California.

The Niche 2016 Best College rankings are based on numerous statistical analysis, according to the site. For instance, in the Best Food category, Niche used an analysis of 1,713 colleges to assess significant factors such as average meal plan cost along with student reviews of food quality. The Best College Campus standings take into account the quality of housing, food services and students' reviews of the campus.

Christian Universities Online ranked CBU No. 32 in the nation among "Top Christian Colleges and Universities Exceeding Expectations in 2016." The ranking methodology was based on gathering data on each college's predicted graduation rate compared to its actual graduation rate and then ranking the colleges based on the difference between those two variables.

Earlier this year, CBU earned several top-40 rankings by U.S. News and World Report in the categories of "Best Regional University," "Best Colleges for Veterans," and "Best Online Degree Programs."
