Nicholls remains in the state’s top five by online ranking aggregator

THIBODAUX, La. — Nicholls State University’s favorability among students ranks above the national average in an online college review aggregator, while also ranking in the top five overall in Louisiana.

In its second year, College Consensus combines rankings from respected college ranking publishers with student reviews to create their unique rating system.

“Recognition like this is gratifying because it reinforces what our faculty and students already know — that Nicholls is among the best in the state and region,” said Nicholls President Dr. Jay Clune. “Our goal is to provide one of the best possible experiences for our students in the Bayou Region.”

College Consensus creates a publisher rating, comprised of the most recent rankings from publications including Forbes, Times Higher Education World University Rankings, U.S. News and World Report and Washington Monthly. The publisher rating is then combined with a student rating score collected from resources such as Unigo, Cappex and Niche to produce the overall score.

Nicholls student score of 76.7 is the second highest score in the state of Louisiana and compares favorably to the national average of 72.2.
