Marlboro rates nationally for student organizations

Marlboro College made the short list for "10 colleges where joining student clubs is easy" released today by U.S. News and World Report. Drawn from U.S. News' survey of more than 1,800 colleges and universities nationally, Marlboro is the only New England college in the top 10 and tied second with Hamilton College in New York State. 

"Since the typical club at these colleges had fewer than 10 people, the odds are higher that club members will get to know each other than at colleges where clubs are larger," said the article. Marlboro was rated as having 6.1 students per club, lower than the average of 7.6 students in the 10 colleges on the short list. That average is seven times the the average among the 1,195 ranked schools that reported these data in an annual survey, which was 56.6 students per club.
