IU Ranks Third Among Universities
with Small Classes
Immaculata University ranks third in highest percentage of small
classes among colleges and universities in the U.S., according to the
U.S. News
Short List. Last fall, 86 percent of Immaculata’s under-
graduate classes had fewer than 20 students.
The
U.S. News
Short List, separate from the publication’s overall
College Rankings, highlights individual data points in order to offer
students and parents a way to find institutions with specific charac-
teristics. To be numerically ranked in the Short List, schools must
self-report data and meet certain criteria required by
U.S. News
.
Small class sizes facilitate a strong learning environment, giving
students space to interact easily with their professors in order to ask
questions and get feedback. Small classes allow faculty members to
focus not only on conveying information, but on getting to know
their students and providing plenty of personal attention and oppor-
tunities for mentorship.
