CSU Stanislaus Ranked 28th Best College by TIME Magazine

TurlockCityNews.com|

California State University Stanislaus has been ranked 28th out of 2,500 colleges and universities nationwide by TIME Magazine.

The TIME Magazine rankings are based on a college rating system developed by President Barack Obama’s administration. The system is based on graduation rate, accessibility and affordability.

The rankings were based on six-year graduation rate, average tuition, and the percentage of students receiving federal Pell Grants, the federally funded scholarships for low-income families. Each of those areas are weighted equally in the ranking formula.

CSU Stanislaus finished third amongst California State University campuses, just behind CSU Long Beach and Fresno State.

“These rankings reinforce what we’ve long known about the CSU system and at CSU Stanislaus in particular,” CSU Stanislaus President Joseph F. Sheley said. “In addition to the quality academic programs we offer and our emphasis on student success, we are committed to providing an affordable education that is accessible to all qualified students regardless of their financial situations.”

In addition to the new TIME rankings, CSU Stanislaus has consistently been recognized in “Best Colleges” publications including the top 378 from the Princeton Review. U.S. News & World Report ranked CSU Stanislaus No. 57 among regional universities in the western U.S.. The university has also been recognized recently for affordability, environmental sustainability and friendliness toward members of the military and their families.

The Obama’s Administration formula has raised some controversy with the decision to rank universities. According to TIME Magazine, the Obama Administration plans to assign an official government rating to every college and university in the country, from tiny faith-based schools to giant state flagships, and then allocate federal financial aid according to those ratings.

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
