ULM National Rankings
It didn’t come at a surprise to me that the University of Louisiana at Monroe was selected for national rankings. Following the excellence of the university in various spheres, I think it is long overdue. ULM dates back to 1931 and is one of the 9 campuses of the University of Louisiana System.
ULM is made up of distinct colleges including arts, business, and social science, education and sciences, and health and pharmaceutical sciences for undergraduates. It also has a graduate school. However, most of the students come for courses like nursing, pharmacy, management, psychology, and computer science.
What makes ULM spectacular in my view is the diverse courses that are thought exclusively online including marketing, criminal justice, history, and counseling. It is some of these great strides that have earned the university national rankings.
National Ranking For Best Value Online Programs
The online platform of University of Louisiana Monroe known has eULM earned the recognition of CollegeStart.org as the “Best Value Online Programs” in the state and one of the best in the entire nation.
The ranking was taken from the list of accredited online universities using a number of criteria including cost, acceptance rate, graduation rate, retention rate, enrollment rate, the percentage of students receiving financial aid, student to faculty ratio, and loan default rate.
Students that chose ULM over other universities that made the ranking list including the University of Connecticut, University of Auburn, Mississippi College, and Kansas State University, commented on the affordability when compared to other schools. The reputation of ULM is also elevated by the success of its post-graduate program.
ULM also offers online degrees through the department like Education, Health Sciences, Humanities, Behavioral Sciences, and Business. The ranking an relevance of ULM will definitely take another leap by the time then the construction of the medical school is completed and classes open in 2020.
Besides the Ranking by CollegeStart.org, ULM has also appeared in three different categories on the list of Best Colleges by U.S. News. ULM ranked 230 – 301 in the National Universities, 237 in High School Counselor Rankings, and 405 in Business Programs.
Other Programs That Give ULM A Good Ranking
Apart from ULM’s academic achievements, the institution also has a variety of organizations and clubs available to students. The ULM Warhawks, for example, began the 2018 season on a high note attracting the admiration of their fans. The ULM football team, the Warhawks is currently having an impressive run at the 2018 season which I am optimistic will grow their fan base.
A good number of the organizations and clubs in ULM are award-winning including the competition cheerleading squad and the Sound of Today marching band. The institution’s athletic teams participate in the Sun Belt Conference as part of NCAA Division I. The sports teams in the institution include basketball, baseball, volleyball, soccer, football, golf, and cross country.
