Colleges With The Largest Undergraduate Population: U.S. News & World Report 2013 Ranking

College can feel like a big place. Even more so if you're someone who went from a small town with a few hundred total high school students to a state university with 20,000 students.

But that's nothing compared to some other schools on a list from U.S. News & World Report.

The magazine ranked the colleges with the largest undergraduate student populations, compiling a short list in which all of the schools have more than 37,000 students.

Most of the list features big state schools, like Ohio State University and Texas A&M University, but also has one private institution.

Check out the top 9 in the list below:

  • 1 Arizona State University - 59,382
  • 2 University of Central Florida - 50,968
  • 3 Liberty University - 46,133

    *A large portion of Liberty's student body are online students.
  • 4 The Ohio State University - 43,058
  • 5 Texas A&M University—College Station - 40,103
  • 6 University of Texas—Austin - 39,955
  • 7 Pennsylvania State University - 39,192
  • 8 Florida International University - 37,468
  • 9 Michigan State University - 37,454

Note: HuffPost excluded DeVry University form the list since so many of their students are online and not on campus.
