*Every year, U.S. News and World Report Magazine comes out with a list of the best colleges and universities in the country.

But never do we see a list of the best black colleges and universities on that list.


Well, our partner site MadameNoire decided to take matters into their own hands; they created a list of the top 10 HBCU’s.

Check out the first school on our list below:

10. North Carolina Central University

The only public college in this top-ten list, North Carolina Central University represents an unbeatable opportunity for prospective students to receive a high quality education at only a tiny fraction of the price of other similarly-ranked institutions. With a wide range of undergraduate, graduate, professional, and doctorate degree tracks, NCCU has something to appeal to everyone, including Business and Law programs and ample hands-on research opportunities. Overall, North Carolina Central University offers an unparalleled cost-benefit ratio among HBCUs, making it an attractive option for anyone reluctant to accrue large debts yet not wanting to compromise education quality.
