This Is The #1 Professor In The Entire Country


What universities offer the best professors and campus life?

RateMyProfessors thinks it knows. It has compiled a list of the top 25 universities that have great professors and campus environment.

The ratings giant produced this school honour roll by crunching the numbers in its massive database that contains 10 million ratings for professors from more than 6,5000 institutions.

In this beauty contest, professor rankings represented half the score and the other 50% was based on students’ ranking of their schools on such factors as reputation, location, career opportunities, library, food and social activities.

As you can see from the list, students attending schools in the South seem particularly pleased with their professors and campuses. Eleven out of the 25 schools are from the South.  The students who attend two campuses at Brigham Young University, which are run by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, are also very happy.

What’s also interesting is that most of the schools that made this best school list are state universities. RateMyProfessor, however, says that school size does not affect the outcome of their lists.
