William & Mary has some of the smartest professors in the nation, according to a report published by USA Today this weekend.
The ranking, conducted by Niche, lists W&M as being one of the top five schools with the smartest professors. William & Mary is the only public university and only Virginia institution on the list, which also includes Stanford University, the University of Chicago, the College of Wooster and Smith College.
“Students feel affection and loyalty toward the college, professors and each other, and most say they would choose William & Mary again, if they had the opportunity,” the report says.
Niche, a college review website formerly known as College Prowler, uses a variety of sources to compile its rankings, including student reviews. The USA Today article on the ranking was originally written for The Motley Fool, a content partner for the newspaper.
In March, Business Insider reported on another Niche survey that ranked William & Mary’s students as the smartest in the nation.
