The University of Louisiana at Lafayette is among the top 15 percent of the nation’s four-year colleges for undergraduate education.

That’s according to The Princeton Review, which released its 2018 edition of “The Best 382 Colleges” Tuesday.

“We picked the 382 ‘best’ colleges for our book primarily for their outstanding academics. We highly recommend each one,” said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief and the book’s author.

The guide does not rank schools from 1 to 382 in any category. Instead, it uses students’ ratings of their schools to compile 62 ranking lists of top 20 colleges.

UL Lafayette students who participated in the survey highlighted the University’s attentive faculty, close ties to the surrounding community, and welcoming student body in their appraisals. Among their comments:

  • “My professors have been helpful and knowledgeable, and they are always willing to help their students succeed.”
     
  • “Throughout the year, there are tons of festivals unique to Lafayette, all of which are free to attend.”
     
  • “Everyone accepts one another for who they are. There are friends for everyone.”

In its institutional profile, the guide cited the University’s “fantastic academic departments” and “quality in-class instruction.”
