CARS ranked fifth among fashion schools located in the South and received the web site’s best ranking among programs in the state of North Carolina.

CARS placed No. 23 out of the top 75 highlighted schools nationwide for fashion merchandising. Programs were judged on their academic reputation, admission selectivity, location, and depth and breadth of the program and faculty.

“We are proud to have an independent organization recognize what we already know: That we have a top program with top faculty, consisting of breadth and depth in the field,” said Gwen O’Neal, department chair.
