Four Top 10 Rankings

Stanislaus State landed in the top 10 in four categories as one of the best universities in the West according to rankings released by U.S. News & World Report, further solidifying the University’s impact in the Central Valley and higher education. Stanislaus State advanced its standing from last year in all four categories for universities in the West: No. 3, Social Mobility; No. 4, Top Public Schools; No. 6, Best Colleges for Veterans; No. 10, Regional Universities.

“We are pleased with the University’s remarkable achievement of earning four top 10 rankings in the West from U.S. News & World Report,” said Interim President Susan E. Borrego. “This distinction not only underscores our commitment to academic excellence and student success but also highlights the pivotal role we play as a regional comprehensive University in sculpting the educational landscape.”

After receiving his doctorate in cancer biology at Wayne State University School of Medicine (WSUSOM) in Detroit, Stanislaus State alumnus Julio Pimentel officially goes by Dr. Julio M. Pimentel. A first-generation Hispanic college graduate, Dr. Pimentel hopes his success will inspire more students from the Central Valley to pursue advanced degrees in science.
