McNeese is receiving some high praise on a national scale with a recent publication ranking it as the third best university in Louisiana.

WalletHub recently released their 2020 College And University Rankings. McNeese ranked just behind Tulane and the University of New Orleans and also beat our Louisiana Tech who ranked fourth.

WalletHub analyst Jill Gonzalez told KPLC:

McNeese ranked third best in Louisiana...It ranked 258th overall, which out of over one-thousand schools is a very good number.

Universities are ranked by 33 different different measures like cost & financing, facility resources, campus safety, etc.

Mrs. Gonzalez told Sydney Roberts of KPLC pertaining to McNeese:

McNeese really shined when it came to two different categories, the first was cost and financing...So, net cost is a lot lower than not only most other schools in the state, but also most other schools in the country. There is also a good availability of employment services for students and (low) student loan debt.

Congrats to the staff and students of McNeese.
