The magazine released its annual rankings today, and Kent State landed at 194 to tie with eight other schools out of 1,600 total on the list.

Kent State President Lester Lefton, who is out of town visiting family in California, said in prepared remarks he was pleased to see the university ranked on the list for two years in a row.
"For two years in a row, we are the only public university in Northeast Ohio to receive a spot in the prestigious first-tier list," Lefton said. "As students and parents navigate their way in reviewing options in higher education, Kent State proves once again with this third-party validation that we are a great university that deserves their attention and consideration."
Kent State placed in the Best National Universities category.
The listing is the 28th edition released by U.S. News & World Report. Harvard University and Princeton University tied for the top spot as the nation's best university.
