By Jan Joslin | September 19, 2023

U.S. News & World Report  has once again named ҹ첥 Southern University to its Best Colleges list for 2024 in the Best Regional Universities in the South, Best Colleges for Veterans, and the Top Performers on Social Mobility. ҹ첥 Southern was also named to the national Best Bachelor of Science in Nursing category. 

ҹ첥 Southern University focuses on student success using a Passport to Purpose program. The Passport to Purpose is designed to help students discover their passion, design their pathway, develop their potential, and declare their purpose, enabling them to embark on a life of significance after graduation. 

Dr. Anthony Turner, vice president for enrollment and marketing, said, “Multiple groups recognizing ҹ첥 Southern University on a national level points to the incredible value, academic reputation, and accessibility to quality education provided by the university.” 

Earlier in the year, U.S. News & World Report  named ҹ첥 Southern to the Best Online Bachelor’s Programs, and Best Online Bachelor’s Programs for Veterans lists, making ҹ첥 the top-ranked online program for veterans in South Carolina. 

The Top Performers on Social Mobility category, according to U.S. News & World Report, lists colleges that “are more successful than others at advancing social mobility by enrolling and graduating large proportions of disadvantaged students awarded with Pell Grants.”  

First generation students make up more than a third of the 2023-2024 freshman class. 

Washington Monthly’s recent college rankings again included ҹ첥 Southern on the Best Bang for the Buck in the Southeast list. And, ҹ첥 Southern moved from the Silver level up to Gold status on the 2023 Military Friendly School list.
