College of Charleston named a top school by Princeton Review

August 19, 2020

For the 17th year in a row, The Princeton Review has recognized the College of Charleston as one of the top universities in the country.

The education services company features the College in the new 2021 edition of its annual college guide.

Since 1992, The Princeton Review has released this annual guide of the best colleges in the United States. The guide showcases the universities it recommends to students and families as the best for undergraduates.

According to The Princeton Review, College of Charleston students “enjoy a small-college feel blended with the advantages and diversity of a mid-sized, urban university. Students work with exceptional professors who love to teach, who are focused on student growth and who help them succeed.”

The Princeton Review also writes that CofC with “its beautiful and historic campus, combined with contemporary facilities, cutting-edge programs and accessible faculty, attracts students from across the U.S. and around the world.”

Not only does The Princeton Review also name the College as one of the best schools in the Southeast, but it also reports that the College is one of only 50 schools in the nation featured in the “Colleges That Create Futures” category. That category recognizes schools that “empower students to discover practical applications for their talents and interests through experiences that complement their classes and coursework.”

The Princeton Review college rankings are entirely based on surveys of college students, who rate their schools on dozens of topics and report on their campus experiences exclusively for this project. The ranking lists are based on surveys of 143,000 students at the 386 colleges in the book.
