Princeton Review Names UM Among ‘Best 380 Colleges’

August 07, 2015

MISSOULA – The University of Montana again made the annual list of top four-year colleges and universities in North America by the Princeton Review.

“The Best 380 Colleges: 2016 Edition” was released Aug. 4. The rankings are based on surveys of 136,000 students nationwide. The 80-question survey asked students about academics, administration, campus life and the student body.

According to the 2016 edition, “While [UM] maintains a fantastic liberal arts program, students especially laud the wildlife biology, forestry, physical therapy and forensic anthropology departments. Moreover, undergrads at Montana are highly complimentary of their teachers who are generally ‘helpful, engaging and accessible.’”

Annually published since 1992, the annual Princeton Review ranking includes detailed profiles of each school and ratings in a variety of areas, such as academics, campus life and tuition and aid.
