Auburn University achieves high rankings from The Princeton Review

AUBURN UNIVERSITY – Auburn University achieved high rankings in The Princeton Review’s “The Best 377 Colleges: 2013 Edition” released this week.

Auburn ranked in the top 10 in four categories, including seventh in the category of students packing the stadium, eighth in most conservative students, ninth in best quality of life and 10th in supporting future Rotarians and Daughters of the American Revolution. Following up these top 10 rankings, Auburn also ranked 12th in most religious students and 13th in the quality of town-gown relations.

These rankings are based on The Princeton Review’s survey of 122,000 students attending the 377 colleges included in the book. The 80-question survey asked students to rate their own schools on several topics and report on their experiences at them. Topics ranged from assessments of their professors to opinions about their financial aid and campus food. The survey results were tabulated into Top 20 lists in 62 categories.

Auburn is also featured in a two-page profile, which includes details about academics, life, the student body, admissions and financial aid, along with other information from the Office of Admissions. The “Survey Says” portion of the profile lists some of the topics on which students surveyed at Auburn were most in agreement. Students agree that the university has a great library, that they all love the Tigers and that they are generally happy.

“The Best 377 Colleges” is the 21st edition of The Princeton Review’s annual “best colleges” book and is available for purchase in bookstores.
