BusinessInsider.com, in partnership with niche.com, published a list of 50 underrated colleges around the country — one from each state — which exhibited great academics, high acceptance rates and strong in-state student populations.

“I have said many times, ULM is the best kept secret in Louisiana’s higher education system,” said ULM President Dr. Nick J. Bruno.  “It is very rewarding to see independent sources recognize that ULM is an institution that has a lot to offer to students seeking a quality education.” 

ULM was ranked with other “underrated” universities, such as Clemson University, Mississippi State University, Texas A&M University, the University of Florida, the University of Oklahoma and Virginia Tech University.
