I am looking for a college with a nuclear concentration in physics. What are the top colleges to be looking at?

Right now on my list is Reed College, and RPI.

Thanks!

Here is a list of Nuclear Physics reseach institutes - http://www.rarf.riken.go.jp/rarf/np/nplab.html

I would recommend one investigate various programs and their specialties.

Center for Experimental Nuclear Physics and Astrophysics (CENPA)
University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, USA
http://www.npl.washington.edu/

Nuclear Theory Group in the Physics Department
University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI.
http://nucth.physics.wisc.edu/

U of Wisc also has a very good nuclear engineering program.

UIUC Nuclear Physics Lab, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Purdue University's Nuclear Engineering department has a really interesting program in computational physics. They are working with Argonne National Laboratory on the next generation of reactor simulator.

Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory (Duke University / North Carolina State University / University of North Carolina ) NCSU has a good nuclear engineering program as well.

its not strictly physics related, but OSU in corvallis has a top rated undergrad and grad program in nuclear engineering and radiation health physics.

depending on your career emphasis, it might be worth a look.
