CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY- Campbellsville University has recently been ranked 63 in a survey taken for Best Regional Universities in the south by College Consensus.
Campbellsville University achieved an average or above average score in six out of the seven categories listed by College Consensus, which they used to rank each university.

The College Consensus’s list of Best Regional Universities in the south for 2018 was achieved through the combination of the school’s published rankings and students review ratings. This method then applied to southern universities which are classified as having a regional mission.
“The best regional universities are a crucial part of the South, especially for rural areas,” Colleges Consensus said.
College Consensus, a new college review aggregator, is comprehensive, composing a diverse survey including 97 different colleges and universities to determine the Best Regional University in the south.
“It’s not just one voice stating an opinion—it’s many, many voices, computed objectively and equally,” according to the website of College Consensus.
“The College Consensus method allows every institution, the richest and the best-known university to the smallest and hardest-working regional college, to demonstrate what they do best.”
College Consensus continues:
“By combining the results of all of the most reputable college ranking publishers and thousands of real student reviews from around the web, College Consensus provides the most accurate and comprehensive ranking of a school’s reputation and quality available anywhere.”
