Did Your College Make Forbes List of America’s Top Colleges?


GwendolynHR_1827Although the caps were tossed in the air months ago, you’re still undecided about where to go to college. Do I stay close to home, go to a prestigious college or university, or take a gap year?

Whatever the case, don’t fret. There is still enough time to choose a college. Besides, it’s never to late to go to college. Right?!

When choosing a college, there is so much to consider. However, considering local options as well as how those colleges and universities stack up is a good place to start. Perhaps, Forbes’ list of best colleges and universities can help you get on track.

So… There you have it, the number one college in every state. Did your college make the Forbes list of America’s Top Colleges?

According to Forbes, Hendrix College is the best the college in Arkanas. It’s a pretty good school and I know several people that graduated from there including my baby sister.

Be proud of your college (choice), even if it’s not number one in your state or on the list. From where I sit, I “got” much love for my HBCUs (Historically Black College and Universities).  I’m a proud graduate of Philander Smith College (Little Rock, Arkansas).

One thought on “Did Your College Make Forbes List of America’s Top Colleges?

  1. The best college is, “where YOU find it”.

    In any scenario, it is what YOU make of it, and not necessarily the University or College itself.

    Just look at some of the most successful people on the planet and the Colleges or Universities they attended if, they even attended at all.

    I applaud ALL who seek higher education be it, traditional college, self taught, internet wise, street wise, or otherwise.

    “Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is NOT philosophy, this is Physics.”
