USF is one of “The 50 most underrated colleges in America” — number 22 to be exact, according to new rankings by news website Business Insider

The list takes into account universities’ U.S. News & World Report (USNWR) ranks compared to the salaries of their recent graduates. It includes schools such as Georgetown, Marquette, and Virginia Tech.

“The most underrated colleges and universities in America are those … whose graduates make much higher salaries than their U.S. News rankings would suggest,” Business Insider said.

This year, USF broke into USNWR’s top 100 schools in the nation. The median salary for Dons 10 years after entering university is $62,300, according to the Department of Education.
