Forbes magazine has named Franciscan University of Steubenville as one of America's top colleges for 2014.
Franciscan was selected from among the 4,500-plus colleges and universities in the United States for a spot on the list of only 650 schools that distinguished themselves on rankings including post-graduate success (32.5 percent), student satisfaction (25 percent), student debt (25 percent), academic success (10 percent), and graduation rates (7.5 percent).
