August 08, 2014

MISSOULA – The University of Montana recently was named one of the top four-year colleges and universities in North America by the annual Princeton Review ranking.

“The Best 379 Colleges: 2015 Edition” was released Aug. 4. The rankings are based on surveys of 130,000 students. The 80-question survey asked students about academics, administration, campus life and the student body.

UM students surveyed by the Princeton Review said they appreciate the University’s focus on “environmental sustainability and social justice” along with the fact that UM strives to develop “creative thinkers and engaged citizens.” 

Annually published since 1992, “The Best 379 Colleges” includes detailed profiles of each school and ratings in a variety of areas, such as academics, quality of life and financial aid. No school has ever paid a fee to be profiled in the book.
