The University of Mississippi has not only some of the happiest professors, but is also highest ranked university according to newest annual ranking by RateMyProfessors.com.

RateMyProfessors.com is a website where collegiate students can review professors. This service may be useful when registering for classes. The website has more than 7,000 schools with 16 million ratings from the United States to Canada to the United Kingdom. In its 2014-2015 list, the website reports the University of Mississippi as its highest ranked among 25 listed universities.

The University of Mississippi has 75 rankings in 10 categories: reputation (4.3), the internet (4.1), opportunities (4.5), the campus (4.8), the social atmosphere (4.6), its location (4.7), its food (4.0), its library (4.5), the club scene (4.7), and happiness (4.7). Its overall ranking is 4.5.

RateMyProfessors.com explains its methodology.

“School rankings are based partially on the above professor ratings. In order to assemble a school’s rating, we include both its overall Professor Average rating, as well as its Overall School Rating which is an average of its campus ratings**. We weigh professor ratings and campus ratings equally (50 percent each), which implies that a top school scores high both in terms of academics as well as campus life. Similar to the professor ratings, in order to provide statistical significance, we only admit schools with at least 30 rated professors and 30 campus ratings. Using the resulting scores, schools are ranked from high to low.”

Its top three professors are Ross Haenfler (4.9), Julie Anderson (4.9) and John Winkle III (4.8).
