It's not easy to decide which college to attend when there are so many options available for student athletes. Our mission at College Factual is to arm you with as much information as we can to help you make that decision. Our Best Colleges for Division I Men's Football in Rhode Island ranking is one tool we have developed to help in this regard.

Our analysis looked at 3 schools in Rhode Island to determine which ones were the best for D1 Men's Football athletes in Rhode Island. Our ranking is based on several objective factors, including the school's overall quality and the athletic competitiveness of the school. We steer clear of subjective measures since they don't give a clear picture when determining how one school compares to another. So, even if a school has a great team, it won't place well if it is also considered a low quality college or university.

See what other factors we include in our ranking methodology.

One Size Does Not Fit All

We know that one set of rankings doesn't always help you determine the best school for you, so we've created the ability to narrow your list by location as well as alternative rankings that prioritize different factors such as those of importance to online students or returning adults or those who value diversity and value for your money.

We've created a tool called College Combat that lets you create your own customized comparisons based on the factors that matter the most to you. We encourage you to try it out and pit your favorite colleges and universities head to head! If you don't have time right now, you can bookmark it for later.
