U.S. News & World Report has released its list of best colleges and LSU ranks in the top tier in several categories.

The report collected data on nearly 1,800 colleges and universities to compile its rankings.

LSU is ranked at No. 62 overall among public universities and No. 129 overall in the "Best National Universities" category. It is tied with five other schools.

The LSU College of Engineering is ranked No. 49 in the "Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs," while the LSU E. J. Ourso College of Business is ranked No. 50 in the "Best Undergraduate Business Programs."

"LSU has consistently been ranked in the top tier of the best national universities, and our graduates show that LSU is among the nation’s best values in higher education," said LSU President F. King Alexander. "The real value of a university can be seen in such measures as tuition rates, levels of student indebtedness and career outcomes, and these are the important measures that parents and potential students need when making their college decisions."
