Princeton Review Names UM Among Best 384 Colleges for 2019

August 16, 2018

MISSOULA – The University of Montana recently was named to the Princeton Review’s 2019 list of top four-year colleges and universities in North America.

“The Best 384 Colleges: 2019 Edition” was released Aug. 7. Rankings in the 2019 edition are based on online surveys of 138,000 students at colleges that appeared in the book in the previous three years. The survey asks students 84 questions about their school’s academics, administration and student body, as well as themselves.

In addition to making “The Best 384 Colleges” list, UM also was among the 129 schools selected for the western division of the Princeton Review’s “Best Regional Colleges.”  

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, tuition and financial aid.
