    A new report names the University of Florida as the state's top college, with Florida State and University of Central Florida following.

    The rankings were produced by the financial website WalletHub, which considered factors such as student-faculty ratio, graduation rate and post-attendance median salary to judge over 1,000 higher-education institutions in the U.S.

    The University of Florida, for example, scored highly for its graduation rate, but did less well for its on-campus crime and student-faculty ratio.

    University of South Florida, St. Thomas University and the University of Miami were also named among Florida's top 10 colleges and universities.

    Here's a look at how the top 10 lined up:

    1. University of Florida

    2. Florida State University

    3. University of Central Florida

    6. University of Miami

    7. University of West Florida
