CLEMSON — The Princeton Review once again has ranked Clemson University among the nation’s best colleges.

Clemson was ranked among the top universities in six categories in The Princeton Review’s “The Best 381 Colleges” 2017 edition:

Their Students Love These Colleges – No. 3
Student Career Services – No. 5
Students Pack the Stadiums – No. 5
Town-Gown Relations – No. 9
Everyone Plays Intramural Sports – No. 10
Happiest Students – No. 11

“Choosing a college is not only an emotional decision, but an exercise with an expected return on investment,” said Robert Barkley, Clemson’s director of admissions. “The accolades that Clemson received from The Princeton Review this year not only reflect the emotion, engagement and excitement that help make up the Clemson Experience, but also highlight the university’s commitment to ensuring that students are prepared to be competitive and successful in the job market.”

Clemson was the only South Carolina college ranked in six categories in “Best 381 Colleges.”

Only about 15 percent of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges are profiled in the book. Published annually since 1992, it includes detailed profiles of the colleges with rating scores for all schools in eight categories, plus ranking lists of top 20 schools in the book in 62 categories based on The Princeton Review’s surveys of students attending the colleges.

“Clemson’s outstanding academics are the chief reason we chose it for this book and we strongly recommend it to applicants,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s senior vice president-publisher and author of “The Best 381 Colleges.”

“We make our selections primarily based on data we collect through our annual surveys of administrators at several hundred four-year colleges. Additionally, we give considerable weight to observations from our school visits, opinions of our staff and our 24-member National College Counselor Advisory Board and an unparalleled amount of feedback we get from our surveys of students attending these schools.”

The lists in this edition are entirely based on The Princeton Review’s survey of 143,000 students (about 375 per campus on average) attending the colleges. The 80-question survey asks students to rate their schools on several topics and report on their campus experiences at them.
