Albion College is one of The Princeton Review’s “Best Colleges” for 2024

August 17, 2023

Albion College has been named one of the “Best Colleges” by The Princeton Review in the 2024 edition of its college guide, “The Best 389 Colleges.”

This is the sixth consecutive year Albion has been included in the guide.

Albion College also was listed among the current guide’s “Best Midwest” schools and “Green Colleges.” The Princeton Review considers “Best Midwest” schools to be “academically outstanding and well worth consideration in your college search.” “Green Colleges” feature “sustainability practices, a strong foundation in sustainability education and a healthy quality of life for students on campus.”

Albion ranked No. 12 overall on the guide’s list of schools with the greatest participation in intramural sports.

Recognized for its “great reputation” and offering a “great liberal arts education,” Albion’s profile in the guide is based on data from student surveys. The survey has more than 80 questions in four main sections: “About Yourself,” “Your School’s Academics/Administration,” “Students” and “Life at Your School.”

“Students here truly appreciate that Albion works diligently to foster an environment that encourages questions and thinking all the while aiming to provide personal attention to each student,” reads Albion’s profile.

Student responses from the survey also praised faculty as caring about their students and being accessible and lauded the diversity of students and the number of available campus activities.

“We created our rankings to provide a resource for college applicants that helps them answer what may well be the toughest question in their college search, ‘What’s the best school for me?’” said Rob Franek, editor-in-chief of The Princeton Review and lead author of “The Best 389 Colleges.” “Our selection of colleges for this book reflects our high opinion of the schools.”
