Seton Hill University earned the number 13 spot among the Best Baccalaureate Colleges in the North Region in the 2010 edition of America’s Best Colleges by U.S. News and World Report. The exclusive rankings are available online at

Seton Hill was classified in the Baccalaureate College category. According to U.S. News and World Report, “these institutions focus primarily on undergraduate education and offer a range of degree programs in liberal arts, which account for fewer than half of their bachelor’s degrees, and in professional fields such as business, nursing, and education.”

“I was very excited to hear the news of Seton Hill’s rank with the U.S. News and World Report. This adds to my trust in our faculty and their constant desire to provide to all my fellow students and me not only a well-rounded liberal arts education, but also a caring and helpful community,” said Katie Fritsch, president, Seton Hill Government Association.
