RateMyProfessors.com has announced its annual list of the “Top 25 Highest Rated Universities” in the nation, and Florida A&M University (FAMU) is on it, ranking fifth out of more than 7,500 schools.
FAMU is the only public institution in Florida to make the list, which is based entirely on student ratings of professors (3.7 out 5) and campus life (4.1 out of 5).
According to RateMyProfessors.com — a site owned and operated by MTV’s college network, mtvU — student input makes this list different than typical college rankings by providing an “authentic overview of daily life at each respective school.”
RateMyProfessors.com says it is built for college students, by college students, and claims to be the highest-trafficked U.S. college professor rating site (comScore), reaching its highest-trafficked months ever in April 2012 (7.5 million unique visitors) and May 2012 (7.4 million unique visitors).
The site consists entirely of student-generated ratings of current or former professors, featuring more than 7,500 schools, 1.7 million professors and 14 million ratings. RateMyProfessors.com reaches 6 million college students on average each month.
