The University of Georgia has climbed three spots on the U.S. News and World Report 2019 list of best public national universities, the highest ranking in the school’s history.

This is the third consecutive year the university has risen in the U.S. News ranking. A key factor in the improvement was UGA’s lower student-faculty ratio, which dropped from 18:1 to 17:1. An improvement in the subjective category of reputation, as assessed by college presidents, provosts and admissions directors, also factored into the new ranking, as well as the quality and performance of its students.
