WORCESTER, Mass. – According to the March 9, 2017 issue of Money Magazine in conjunction with Sports Illustrated, Assumption College has been selected as one of the 100 Best Colleges for Sports Lovers across all NCAA Divisions.
Assumption checked in at 94th overall to make its debut on the list. The Hounds were also ranked as the No. 2 College in Division II, finishing only behind Augustana College.
Money Magazine couldn't make the list alone, so they "partnered with Sports Illustrated to compile a list of great colleges for students who love sports—but who also want a high-quality, affordable education that positions them for career success. To build this list, we began with colleges that made the cut in our annual Best Colleges ranking, which scores schools on affordability, academic excellence, and career outcomes. Then we added 15 sports-specific data points and split them into two buckets: athlete opportunities and fan experience."
