Best Fashion Programs in Tennessee

Written by FS StaffAugust 20, 2013

Organizations such as U.S. News & World Report, Princeton Review, Forbes, and Businessweek evaluate the nation’s colleges each year to determine which are the best of the best. Some organizations may publish their very own “Top 20” list, while others may rank the nation’s top 100 U.S. colleges. To determine which schools deserve a spot in the rankings, the school may be evaluated based on program offerings, graduation and retention rates, peer assessment, faculty resources (student-teacher ratio), financial resources, and student selectivity.
