Lynn University named in U.S. News and World Report’s “2015 America’s Best Colleges”

_107BOCA RATON, Fla., Sept. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Lynn University is one of America’s best colleges, according to U.S. News and World Report’s annual rankings released today. Lynn achieved special recognition for enrolling the fifth largest percentage of international students—24 percent—in the National Universities category, comprised of 280 institutions.

“The annual rankings consistently reflect the dedication and commitment we have to being one of the most innovative, international, small universities in America,” said Lynn University President Kevin M. Ross. “We continuously innovate to attract not only students from around the world, but also U.S. students who want to study and collaborate with peers from other cultures. Our small size contributes to the international learning environment by providing comfortable, intimate classroom settings where teachers know students on a first-name basis.”

U.S. News and World Report has recognized Lynn’s high international student population for over a decade. Last year the publication indicated that 22 percent of Lynn students were international, an increase over the 18 percent reported in 2013. Lynn expects the growth to continue, given that it recently welcomed its largest incoming class in the past eight years.

“Lynn’s location at the center of a strategic gateway to America’s commerce and culture also helps attract students from across the world,” said Vice President for Enrollment Management Gareth Fowles. “Having more international students on campus is a rewarding experience for both students and faculty members. And once they are here, we ensure they receive the support they need to transition to and benefit from their academic experience.”

Lynn’s growing international population is a point of pride the university celebrates by flying the national flag of each of the 90 countries its students represent. The university also offers a variety of cultural groups and events that encourage all students to experience and understand different cultures, including Multicultural Day.

Lynn also placed in the U.S. News and World Report high school counselor rankings for the National Universities category. Institutions in this category are identified by high schools across the country for offering the best undergraduate education.
