The College of Charleston, along with four other S.C. colleges and universities, has been picked as one of the country’s top schools for undergrads by The Princeton Review.
The Princeton Review has unveiled its list of the 376 best colleges for 2012, which also includes Clemson University, Furman University, University of South Carolina and Wofford College.
About 15% of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges are profiled in the book, and 2012 marks the eighth consecutive year that the College of Charleston has made the list.
In the profile of CofC, The Princeton Review notes the school’s academics and campus and quotes students surveyed for the evaluation.
Commenting on their campus experiences, one student claimed that the College of Charleston provides “huge university opportunities with a small-college, personalized atmosphere.” Another student said the College of Charleston “exemplifies ‘progressive traditionalism’” and “is all about liberal arts; the education is well-rounded and intriguing.”
The rankings are based on collected data in eight categories, which include admissions selectivity, quality of life, financial aid and environmental policies and practices.
