|New Mexico State University||193||109|
|University of New Mexico||239||138|

Washington Monthly, a progressive political and cultural magazine, released a list of top colleges Friday, ranking New Mexico State University above the University of New Mexico and the University of Texas, El Paso.
This news comes one month after Forbes released its list of America’s Best Colleges, in which New Mexico State was ranked 193 out of 600. The ranking, once again, beat out the other schools.
Rankings for Washington Monthly, according to the Web site, are based on social mobility, research and service. Forbes uses a different system to rank colleges, part of which stresses the quality of education.
According to the Web site, “It is important to note that if a school appears on this list at all, that indicates it meets a certain level of quality”.
