It's a battle of colleges and universities. Which schools are looking the best in 2018?

Oh college. The good ol' days. I think back on my days in college with a smile on my face. Aside from my degree, I can say those years opened many doors for me. I spent a semester living in New York City, I found my best friends and even found my husband. Thank you, Baylor.

To me, my alma mater will always be the best in the nation. I'm sure you feel the same about your school. However, you and I may be wrong... at least, according to WalletHub's latest study.

The financial site looked at colleges and universities all across the nation to compile their list of "2018's College & University Rankings." To do this, they looked at things like student selectivity, cost, financing and financial assistance, and even career outcomes.

Here are their top 5...

1. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
2. Princeton University
3. Harvard University
4. Stanford University
5. California Institute of Technology

Arkansas had a few schools land on the list. Hendrix College ranked the highest of those in Arkansas, coming in at number 153. Next, John Brown University came in at number 204, Harding ranked at number 286, University of Arkansas found itself at number 307, while Ouachita Baptist came in at number 405.
