Humboldt State University has been named a top school by two national college rankings.

U.S. News & World Report

Last week, HSU was named a top western university by U.S. News & World Report.

HSU was ranked 15th among public schools in its category and 53rd among all regional universities in the west, according to the 2014 Best Colleges ranking.

The report defines regional universities as schools that offer a broad range of undergraduate degrees and some master’s programs. Regional universities are further divided into four geographical groups: North, South, Midwest and West.

The annual Best Colleges ranking is based on a variety of factors including academic quality and excellence.

In August, HSU was named a top master’s university in the country by Washington Monthly.

Humboldt State was ranked among the top 7 percent of master’s universities in the country and 20th among public universities in its category, according to the 2013 College Guide.

The report rates schools based on their contribution to the public good in three broad categories: Social Mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), Research (producing cutting-edge scholarship and PhDs), and Service (encouraging students to give something back to their country).
