UMHB ranked in top tier of two national surveys

UMHB ranked in top tier of two national surveys

This fall, the university was spotlighted in two prestigious national ranking systems.
UMHB once again earned a top tier ranking in the Universities-Master’s West category of the 2011 edition of America’s Best Colleges by U.S. News & World Report. UMHB moved up in its overall ranking to number 30, compared to 32 last year. The university has remained in the tier-one rankings since 2005 and has remained in the top 50 universities in the West Region since 2008.

The university was also named a Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs magazine in its 2011 list of Military Friendly Schools. The list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools which are doing the most to embrace America’s veterans as students.

“With the world’s largest Army base less than 20 miles from our campus, the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor has worked to meet the needs of military families, and we hope always to support the efforts of these great men and women who defend our country,” President O’Rear said.

A variety of campus opportunities are provided specifically for soldiers and their dependents. The university offers scholarships to active duty soldiers, which completely offset the cost of tuition and fees. Dedicated academic counselors for soldiers are available both on post and on campus. A full ROTC program was added in fall 2009, and a veteran’s student organization recently started on campus.
