Her Campus Names McNally Smith One of the Top 10 “Most Beyoncé Colleges” in the Country

Move over all you colleges in the rankings of U.S. News & World Report: McNally Smith College of Music is one of the Top 10 “Most Beyoncé Colleges” in the nation. Her Campus, the #1 global online community for college women, recently posted their picks for colleges achieving “Queen-Bey-level flawless status.”

“McNally Smith was a shoe-in for our Most Beyoncé Colleges list thanks to their revolutionary hip-hop studies degree, the only degree of its kind,” says Stephanie Kaplan Lewis, CEO, co-founder and editor-in-chief of “There’s no doubt there are future Beyoncés walking their halls!”

“Her Campus is plugged into what’s going on at colleges across the country, with a team of more than 4,000 student journalists contributing to its site, so we know they have the inside scoop on who’s doing what and where,” notes McNally Smith President Harry Chalmiers. “With the new school year just beginning and young women looking to find a music college providing the business, technical and life skills to make a career in contemporary music, we’re happy to make the ‘Beyoncé List!’”

“We wanted to turn the traditional college rankings on their head and put a fun, decidedly collegiate spin on them,” says Kaplan Lewis. “The college experience is about so much more than just academics, and these rankings take a critical, multi-faceted look at our nation’s colleges and all they have to offer in and outside the classroom, while having (more than) a little bit of fun, too.”
