U.S. News & World Report is out with its latest college rankings, just in time to make the poor freshmen moving into dorms rethink whether they should have gone somewhere else. The Colorado/Wyoming results:
77. University of Colorado at Boulder
80. Colorado School of Mines
89. University of Denver
125. Colorado State University
Tier 3 University of Colorado at Denver
Tier 3 University of Wyoming at Laramie
Tier 4 University of Northern Colorado
And, even though it isn’t Colorado-related, Elaine Ellis would want you to know that Notre Dame is ranked 18th.
UPDATE: And Colorado College ranked 30th in the magazine’s rankings of Liberal Arts schools (thanks, Bree.)

What about Colorado College? #30 in tier one liberal arts!
I actually think college rankings are a joke. Just like pre-season college football rankings. I mean seriously? How can Notre Dame NOT be ranked #1 on the poll following our 3-9 season last year? In all seriousness, we’ve always been known as a woman’s soccer team (aren’t we ranked in that?)
