Carroll College has been named for the 11th year in a row as the “Best Regional College in the West,” according to “Best Colleges in the Nation” rankings for 2022 released by U.S. News & World Report.

It’s a distinction that Carroll officials say is a record, noting that it is the only regional college and the only Catholic college in the nation to have earned this distinction for 11 consecutive years. College officials said Carroll had a perfect overall score of 100 with the 2022 rankings providing data on over 1,400 schools.

Carroll College President John Cech said in a news release that his initial reaction was “Wow!”

He noted that “this continued prestigious acknowledgement is because of our excellent student success, superb faculty, and outstanding staff.”

“For Carroll College to have maintained this No. 1 ranking for longer than any other regional college in the country is a remarkable achievement,” Cech said.

Carroll also moved up a spot into the No. 2 position
