Delaware County leads the way when it comes to the number of top universities and colleges that reside here.

A list of the 146 best colleges and universities in Pennsylvania for 2022 includes nine from Delaware County and three of them rank in the top five, writes Lisa Dukart for Philadelphia Business Journal.

Haverford College in Haverford Township came in third-best in the state, followed by Swarthmore College at No. 4 and Villanova University at No. 5.
