College Choice put together the list of the Top 20 Colleges in New Jersey for 2017.

Fun fact: New Jersey is home to two of the nine colleges established in the thirteen colonies prior to the Declaration of Independence in 1776. The College of New Jersey, known today as Princeton University, was founded in 1746, Queen’s College, known today as Rutgers University, was founded in 1766.

College Choice used variables like graduation rate, institutional reputation, student-to-faculty ratio, endowment size, tuition costs, average student indebtedness after graduation and graduates expected early career salary to create this list of the state's 20 Best Colleges.
