Loyola University Maryland has been named to the list of “America’s Top Colleges” by Forbes.

Loyola was ranked No. 164 on the list of nearly 700 colleges that were given top marks by Forbes. Loyola was also ranked No. 118 on the list of private colleges and No. 77 of colleges in the Northeast.

“This type of recognition speaks to the Jesuit, liberal arts education and experience we offer to our students and to the lives they lead after graduating,” said Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J., president. “What a pleasure to receive this news now as we look forward to welcoming the newest members of our community—the Class of 2022—to campus next week.”

For this ranking, Forbes “focuses on the direct benefits schools provide their graduates,” according to an article about their methodology. The list considers alumni salaries, debt after graduation, the student experience, career accolades, and retention and graduation rates.
