For the fifth year in a row, Forbes Magazine has named Centenary College as one of the nation's top colleges. Out of 650 institutions on the list, Centenary is ranked 289th. The only other Louisiana school to rank higher than Centenary is Tulane. It's ranked 129th. The annual rankings are based on post-graduate success, student satisfaction, debt, four-year graduation rate, and competitive awards. But, unlike other national rankings, Forbes does not consider a school's reputation or selectivity.
