The most impressive rankings go to the University of Notre Dame, which came in 18th in the overall ratings, and to Purdue University's undergraduate engineering program with a doctoral track, which tied for ninth in the nation.

Other contenders in the overall rating for national universities were Purdue University at 66th and Indiana University at 71st. The state also has a strong showing for its liberal-arts colleges:

-DePauw University, Greencastle, 49th;

-Wabash College, Crawfordsville, 54th;

-Earlham College in Richmond, 67th; and

-Hanover College in Hanover, 98th.

The lists are sliced several ways, rating schools by different categories and specific undergraduate and graduate programs. For more information, go to http://colleges.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/college.
