Hobart and William Smith Colleges have been recognized in Money Magazine’s annual Best Colleges in America rankings for their commitment to quality education, affordability, and graduate outcomes.


Officials say the role of creating strong relationships between faculty, staff, and students was crucial to achieving this distinction.

Money Magazine’s list offers a practical analysis of over 700 four-year colleges, grading on 26 factors across three categories: quality of education, affordability, and outcomes.

Key considerations include graduation rates, instructor accessibility, net price of a degree, debt management, and employment outcomes ten years post-graduation. This recognition follows HWS’s inclusion in The Princeton Review’s Best Value Colleges 2023 list earlier this spring.
