2.0 Campuses: The Top 10

After doing some research IntelliGrad has arrived at what we believe to be the first 2.0 Campus Rankings. We base these results on numerous factors including: innovation of alumni, innovative use of technology in teaching, school size, school location, entrepreneurship/web-related course offerings, ’wiredness,’ endowment and number of students, student voice/engagement. Please take this with a grain of salt“ we invite comments, feedback and suggestions. I’m sure we have missed some great schools
