July 17, 2014
Two point eight is not usually a number that excites people - and you usually don't cheer when you are ranked 604th.
But those numbers have officials at the University of Montana giving high fives.
According to a group called "The Center for World University Rankings," the University of Montana is the 604th best university in the world out of more than 22,000 degree-granting institutions of higher education.
According to officials at UM, eight indicators are used to compile the rankings: from quality of education and faculty to alumni employment and patents.
