It's your annual reminder that Villanova University is a good school. But not that good of a school.

The Main Line school has been ranked #1 in the North for Regional Schools by US News & World Report for the 21st consecutive year. The "America's Best Colleges" issue will hit stands on September 24th. Creighton took home the honors for the Midwest, Elon for the South, and Trinity University (San Antonio, TX) for the West.

Looking at the New Big East, 5 schools are considered Regional Schools, while the other half are recognized as National Universities.

Here's how they shake out...

Providence #2 North

Xavier #4 Midwest

National Big East Schools

School Ranking
Georgetown #20 National
Marquette #75 National
DePaul #121 National
Seton Hall #128 National

What do you think? Would you rather be a #1 Regional School or #75 Nationally? Oh, and by the way, St. Joseph's (PA) is ranked #11 in the North.
