August 29, 2012
RateMyProfessors.com announced its annual list of the “Top 25 Highest Rated Universities” in the nation and FAMU is on it, ranking fifth out of more than 7,500 schools. In fact, FAMU is the only public institution in Florida to make the list, which is based entirely on student ratings of professors (3.7 out 5) and campus life (4.1 out of 5).
“There’s no higher honor for teachers and schools than to be praised by students who are being impacted by their influence every day,” said Carlo DiMarco, senior vice president, Strategic Partnerships and Development, mtvU. “We extend our sincere congratulations to all of the professors, universities and junior colleges on our top lists.
According to RateMyProfessors.com—a site owned and operated by MTV’s college network, mtvU—student input makes this list different than typical college rankings by providing an “authentic overview of daily life at each respective school.”
“This is great news!,” said Marissa West, president of FAMU’s student government association. “There are so many ways students express their Rattler Pride every day. RateMyProfessors.com offers another way for the student body at FAMU to collectively express that sentiment to the world.”
