Williams College Tops Forbes List of Best Colleges in the U.S.A.

A View of Williams College* (c1884)
Williams College in Williamstown, Mass., has been ranked the top college in the country by Forbes in the publication's annual pick of "America's Best Colleges," with Amherst College placing third on the list.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University ranked fifth and eighth, respectively. Wellesley College ranked twelfth.

Of course a list is hardly necessary: The fine quality of higher-education has long been recognized here in the Bay State - especially in Western Massachusetts - but it's still nice to see five of the top twelve of Forbes' ranking of over six-hundred colleges and universities are from the home team. Kudos.

Here's a link to the article at Forbes:
