THE ROUNDUP

According to U.S. News & World Report, Arizona State University and the University of Arizona have moved back about 20 spots in college rankings from last year.

ASU moved from No. 121 in 2009 to No. 143 this year and similarly UofA moved from No. 102 in 2009 to No. 120 this year.

College counselor Mrs. Robin Miller said she doesn’t take much stalk into these rankings because of the criteria that they take into consideration and the need for the rankings to be interesting in order for U.S. News & World Report to sell more copies.
