'Hispanic Outlook' gives MSU top ranking for third year

For the third straight year, Montclair State University has been labeled an educational leader by a prominent national higher education magazine.

MSU has been selected as a "Publisher's Pick" by The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education magazine. In the Nov. 19 issue, publisher Jose Lopez-Isa said the magazine's 1999 Publisher's Picks include "those colleges and universities nationwide that in our view offer solid opportunities for Hispanic students. The institutions selected are learning what it takes to attract, enable, retain and motivate Hispanic students, so many of whom lack the legacy of college educated families or even the dream of educational credentials."

Additionally, MSU was cited as one of the "Top 100 Schools Graduating Hispanics" nationally, the second time the University has been so honored.

Nearly 7,000 high school guidance counselors nationally will receive the issue. The Paramus-based magazine can be accessed on the Web at www.hispanicoutlook.com.
