A top graphic design school is a school  that’s affordable, convenient, and concerned about what happens to students after they graduate. A top school also has state-of-the-art production and computing facilities, it has a variety of social clubs and organizations, it offers easy access to cultural activities and recreation, and the class sizes are appropriate for the size of the institution. If you’re wondering who determines which schools belong on the “top schools” list, look no further than your peers (if you’re a student), alums, education bloggers, and small media outfits.

The factors used to determine which schools are the “best schools” are different. Factors include types of program offerings, graduation and retention rates, peer assessment, faculty resources, financial resources, and student selectivity. The people behind the “best schools” lists are quite “different” as well. Princeton Review, U.S. News & World Report, Forbes, and other similar organizations typically compile the nation’s most respected “best schools” lists. While the publishers of both lists and the factors used to determine which schools belong on each are different, in most cases, many of the same schools find their way onto both lists. This is the case in the state of Nebraska.
