Keiser University Ranks Among Top Florida Schools for Value, Online Education, and Safe Campuses
A “triple threat” may not sound like a good thing. But when it comes to excellence in a specific area, it certainly is. That’s what you call a football player who is great at passing, kicking and running or an entertainer who can sing, dance and act. In the field of higher education in Florida, Keiser University stands out as a triple threat, according to three recent surveys.
Niche ranks Keiser University as the 2018 Second Best Online University in America. The same source also named Keiser’s Seahawk Nation the 3rd Safest Campus in Florida this year. Money Magazine listed Keiser University Number 8 in Top Colleges for the Money in Florida for 2018.
“We are so pleased that these independent rankings are taking notice of what we’ve known all along – that Keiser University provides a quality education that is affordable, accessible, and safe. Our students can pursue a profession or a career change online from anywhere in the world and from secure campuses across Florida,” said Chancellor Arthur Keiser.
Niche states that its 2018 Best Online Colleges rankings are based on rigorous analysis of academic, admissions, financial, and student life data from the U.S. Department of Education along with reviews from students and alumni. The list includes colleges that offer a majority of their degrees online as well as 100 percent online universities.
Sherry Olsen, Associate Vice Chancellor of the Online Division, has been with Keiser University for 15 years and can attest to the many industry-wide changes regarding how online education is delivered to higher education students. At Keiser, online classes are small. Consequently, faculty can give the students the attention they need, seven days a week.
“Our online faculty and staff keep one thing in mind in everything they do, and that is upholding our “students first” philosophy,” Olsen said. “We have online academic help centers and online student services center that assist students with what they need when they need it.
The Niche website listed more than a thousand reviews of Keiser University’s online experience, for an overall rating of excellent. One review stated, “I have looked into several other colleges nationwide. Keiser is the one college that kept in constant contact with me, updating my information personally. I was completely amazed and blown away by their attention, and would recommend Keiser to anyone.”
The Niche 2018 Safest College Campuses ranking is based on key statistics and student reviews using the data from the U.S. Department of Education, according to Niche. “Top-ranked colleges offer a safe and healthy environment with little or no campus crime, drugs, or alcohol usage,” Niche methodology states.
