The number one spot on the national university list was claimed by Princeton University for the seventh consecutive year while Williams College clenched the number one spot on the liberal arts list for the fifteenth consecutive year.

“Factors in the rankings include graduation and retention rates, surveys of college officials and high school counselors, spending on faculty and selectivity in admissions,” the Post wrote.

Florida residents are beginning to survey the damage across the state, as the massive storm slowly rolled into Georgia.

The New York Times reports that, “the damage in Florida was not as bad as some had predicted, partly because there was less flooding than expected. Still, more than 60 percent of residents are without power, and the Keys sustained heavy damage.”

The damage in the Caribbean region is far worse than what the U.S. mainland appears to have sustained. In some areas, it could take years to recover from the trail of destruction that Irma left behind.
