(Newser) US News and World Report has released its latest college rankings, and it’s full of the usual suspects, with Harvard, Princeton, and Yale topping the list; not much has changed since last year. Among liberal arts colleges, Williams, Amherst, and Swarthmore lead the pack. The magazine also presents its best universities in the world: The UK is on top, with Cambridge at No. 1, followed by Harvard and Yale (don’t ask us why Yale beats Princeton worldwide but not nationally).
