LMU Named No. 3 in the West by U.S. News & World Report; Seaver College Moves Up

For the third year in a row, Loyola Marymount University is No. 3 among the best regional universities in the West, according to the latest edition of U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges.

“I am proud that LMU continues to be recognized among the best universities in the nation, a result of the unmatched Jesuit education we offer,” said President Timothy Law Snyder, Ph.D. “This report offers a glimpse of our extraordinary student-centered learning community. Prospective students and families should take note: we challenge intellectuals and thought leaders to live lives of meaning and purpose in the heart of Silicon Beach, where tomorrow’s thought and tech innovation thrives. These rankings confirm that LMU faculty and students are impactful on a global scale.”

LMU’s Seaver College of Science and Engineering is tied at No. 13 — up from No. 28 — in the ranking of the best undergraduate engineering programs at schools where no doctorate is offered.

LMU was named once again among the best 100 undergraduate business programs, and continues to rank in the top 20 for its entrepreneurship and marketing programs.

Additionally, LMU is No. 3 among the best colleges for veterans in the West, and is named among schools in the West with the most international students.

The latest U.S. News & World Report rankings add to LMU’s growing list of distinctions. According to U.S. News’ graduate program rankings released last spring, the College of Business Administration placed 10th for entrepreneurship and 13th for marketing, and Loyola Law School climbed 10 spots in the overall rankings for best law schools, moving up to 65 out of 196 schools.

The Princeton Review recently ranked LMU 12th for “Students Most Engaged in Community Service,” and the Fiske Guide to Colleges 2017 recognizes the university for its “dynamic mix of solid academics, Jesuit tradition and thriving social life.”
