Oregon State, Reed are Oregon's best colleges, Washington Monthly says

August 26th, 2014

Oregon State University's is Oregon's best big research university, ranking No. 78 nationally, according to rankings of colleges by Washington Monthly that the magazine claims is "aren't ridiculous" like many other rankings.
Oregon State ranked high for admitting lots of low-income students, giving reasonable financial aid to students from families making less than $75,000 and getting a high proportion of its students to graduate.
Washington Monthly's ranking system is based chiefly on whether a college helps low- and moderate-income students get ahead, does lots of research and promotes public service. Oregon State's rating was boosted by the fact that a lot of its students join the Peace Corps or the Reserve Officers Training Corps.
