MISSOULA – The University of Montana recently was named to the Princeton Review’s 2020 list of top four-year colleges and universities in North America.

“The Best 385 Colleges: 2020 Edition” was released this month. Rankings in the 2020 edition are based on online surveys of more than 140,000 students at colleges that appeared in the book the previous three years. The survey asked students more than 80 questions about their school’s academics, administration and student body.

In addition to making “The Best 385 Colleges” list, UM also was selected for the western division of the Princeton Review’s “Best Regional Colleges.”  

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.
