College Choice has published its annual ranking of best Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

Robert Hand, Associate Editor of the ranking, says, “Students who are considering an HBCU would benefit from the traditions set forth by these universities. They were created in a tradition of making their students self-reliant and encouraged them to think for themselves, making these universities more rigorous in their academic pursuits, which lead students to come out of university with a higher quality of education.”

“Currently, HBCUs are going through transitions. As the world becomes more culturally diverse, many of these colleges and universities are seeing an influx of non-black students enrolling in their institutions. This is a welcome change for the schools, many of which have publicly encouraged students of other races to attend their schools and learn more about their cultures,” said Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice.

Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia, tops the list, followed by Howard University in Washington, DC, and Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia.

Here are the top 10 HBCUs on the 2016 College Choice Rankings List:
