For the seventh time in nine years, U.S. News & World Report has ranked Pomona College among the top five national liberal arts colleges in America in the magazine's 2001 guide to America's Best Colleges. Once again, Amherst, Swarthmore, Williams and Wellesley took the top four spots, followed by Pomona, with Bowdoin, Carleton, Haverford, Middlebury and Wesleyan University completing the top 10.
   Last year, Pomona was ranked seventh among its national peers.
   Pomona was joined in U.S. News' 2001 list of America's best liberal arts colleges by two other members of The Claremont Colleges--Claremont McKenna College at 14th and Scripps College at 37th.
   Pomona College was also listed sixth by U.S. News in the publication's "Best Values" ranking for national liberal arts colleges and ninth among peer colleges in campus diversity.
