Carnegie Mellon Rated "Most Wired," Again

For the second year in a row, Yahoo! Internet Life magazine has ranked Carnegie Mellon number one in its annual survey of the 100 "most wired" colleges and universities in the United States.

"Carnegie (Mellon) rules with its state-of-the-art wireless network and its integration of the Net into all aspects of campus life," the magazine said in its October issue.

Yahoo! conducted a survey of 1,300 U.S. universities and colleges that examine how they've incorporated network technologies into campus life.

"Our survey inquired into an institution's sheer computing power, its integration of the Net into curricula and classrooms, its available hours of technical support for students, along with loads of other criteria," the magazine explained. "Collectively, these factors helped us determine each school's wiredness quotient‹our overall measure of a university's technological resources."

Stanford University ranked second, followed by the Georgia Institute of Technology, Dartmouth College and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Yahoo's Web site,, has rankings for the top 200 wired colleges, along with evaluations of small colleges and universities, and two-year institutions.
