In its annual list of colleges with the best professors, the Center for College Affordability and Productivity ranked Hastings College 23rd out of more than 600 colleges across the United States considered in the ranking, according to CBS MoneyWatch.
High-quality liberal arts institutions like Hastings College dominated the top 25 list. In its report on the list, CBS MoneyWatch said that is not a surprise because liberal arts colleges focus on undergraduate education and offer smaller classes that allow students to get to know their professors and find mentors. Hastings College fits that description perfectly.
Hastings College, located in Hastings, Neb., is dedicated to high academic achievement, and its 12-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio helps facilitate positive, supportive interaction between students and faculty that encourages success.
