Universities and colleges come in all shapes and sizes. Just because a college is big doesn't necessarily mean it's prestigious. Conversely, a smaller institution doesn't always mean students who enroll didn't have the grades, or couldn't afford to get into a "bigger" school. Sometimes those smaller schools are just as good, if not better, than their big brothers and sisters, they just don't get the same attention because of their size. According to a recent post on Buzzfeed, one of those schools sits right in the center of Evansville.

The popular news sharing, wacky quiz producing, listicle-generating website asked their readers to submit their picks for the most Underrated Colleges in America using whatever criteria they feel makes them unique, whether it's class sizes, location, or the fact a member of the faculty is a legit Tibetan monk (as is the case at the University of Arkansas).

What makes UE underrated? According to student Ashton Thompson provided Buzzfeed it's this,

They have the No. 1 study abroad program in the nation. You get to spend a semester at the Harlaxton Manor in England. Basically you get to live and study in a castle!!! How does it get any cooler than that?

Personally, I can't think of anything cooler than that, Ashton.

This isn't the first time UE has been recognized on a national level having been listed as one of the Best Universities in the Midwest by U.S. News & World Report back in September.
