Kent State (Geauga) Ranked One of Most Unranked Colleges in America




College is starting which means its time for the rankings-mice in the rankings-basements to run really fast and power up some new rankings for all the most topical and timely websites out there. Gawker relays The Daily Beast's contributions today, which include "Best International Schools, Best Party Schools, Most Beautiful, Happiest," etc., etc., surely to be followed up with Best Schools for Responsibly Cleaning Up Solo Cups and Top Ten Schools for Green Sweaters in November.

Gawker isn't satisfied with the work of The Daily Beast, pointing out that their collective rankings are far from comprehensive, so they added The 25 Most Unranked Colleges in America. Useful and fun, if only to find real schools like the Thunderbird School of Global Management. There ranked in the top five most unranked is a one local institution: Kent State University (Geauga). Congrats! The top five, or bottom five, below.

5. Oklahoma Panhandle State University
4. Divine Word College
3. Kent State University- Geauga
2. Sherman College of Chiropractic
1. Madonna University

Maybe next year they can top Sherman College of Chiropractic. Fingers crossed.
