Alumni Connect – November 2018
Saluting our alumni veterans
Binghamton University was ranked 69 out of 1820 schools in the "Best for Vets" report, making it one of the most veteran-friendly colleges in the nation. To honor our veterans this Veterans Day, we are featuring a few of our alumni who are veterans and have graciously shared their stories with us. In this feature they take time to reflect on why they enlisted, what they accomplished and what Veterans Day means to them.
Binghamton moves up in U.S. News rankings
Binghamton University rose from #87 to #80 in this year’s U.S. News & World Report’s ranking of national universities, also moving from #37 to #32 for public universities. The magazine publishes its rankings of all national universities each fall, and Binghamton has been in the high 80s for the past several years. This year, U.S. News updated its methodology to place more emphasis on student outcomes, which helped Binghamton move up.
