College of Notre Dame of Maryland Named One of U.S. News & World Report’s Best Value Schools

August 17, 2010

College of Notre Dame of Maryland is named again among “Great Schools, Great Prices,” U.S. News & World Report’s compilation of schools offering high quality academic programs for significant value. The College placed at No. 14 in the best value category for Regional Universities-North. The College also rose to the No. 29 spot among Best Regional Universities-North, up from No. 30 last year, and was recognized within the category for its low faculty-to-student ratio, with 85 percent of classes containing fewer than 20 students.

“We are proud that College of Notre Dame is once again recognized as a great school at a great price, offering the highest quality academic experience to our students,” said Mary Pat Seurkamp, Ph.D., president of Notre Dame. “Our small class sizes and low (twelve-to-one) faculty-to-student ratio allow students to have personal interaction with their instructors and each other, providing an engaging and supportive learning environment.”

The exclusive national rankings, which include more than 1,400 schools nationwide, are available today at www.usnews.com/colleges, and will also be published in the September issue of the U.S .News & World Report magazine, on newsstands starting August 20th. 

College of Notre Dame of Maryland is recognized for its commitment to a liberal arts education, including strong teacher preparation and nursing degree programs and small class sizes. The Women’s College, the first Catholic college for women in the United States to award the four-year baccalaureate degree, offers 26 majors. In fall 2009 the College welcomed its inaugural class to the School of Pharmacy. Weekend and Accelerated colleges offer part-time programs for working women and men. Graduate Studies in education, nursing, management, communication and liberal studies provide students with a focused contemporary curriculum. Visit ndm.edu for more information.
