OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma City University has been ranked among the best colleges in the nation by a national magazine.

U.S. News & World Report released its list of the best US colleges Tuesday. OCU was ranked No. 24 in the west regional universities category, which is two places higher than last year and the best rank of universities in Oklahoma.

The regional category is made up of universities that offer a full range of undergraduate programs and some master’s programs.

OCU President Robert Henry says students, faculty and challenging academic programs contributed to OCU’s high ranking. The average grade-point average of incoming freshmen this year is 3.56.

The magazine bases its rankings on various factors including graduation and retention rates, peer assessments, faculty resources, student selections, financial resources and alumni giving programs.
