2018 U.S. News college rankings: Tulane tops in Louisiana; LSU falls to 10th in SEC

https://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge ... 23237.html

"falls to 10th in the SEC......." which tells me that other schools in their conference may be using all that money to build up their academic side, LSU? Not so much

Article is mostly about LSU, the Advocate still struggles trying to get away from their B.R. roots.

I think 41. US News changed their system this year and added stuff about the percentage of students receiving pell grants or something, so from what I've heard many schools "like us" saw a similar change. And some larger, mostly public universities went up.
We praise thee for thy future, Alma Mater;
The vista of its glory gleameth far.
We shall ever be part of thee, great Mother;
Thou wilt be where e'er thy children are.

After a brief bump, sad to see we are slipping again
