Elizabeth City State University has received a national recognition.
U.S. News and World Report ranks the university 6th in the nation on the list of historically black colleges where freshman are most likely to return.
The report says earning a top 10 entry on the list is an achievement, given the challenges associated with the first year of college, and the fact that half of the historically black colleges and universities in the survey had a graduation rate of 33-percent or lower for black students.
Winston-Salem State University and North Carolina A&T also made the top 10.
