Princeton Review places University among nation’s “Best 388” colleges


The University of Louisiana at Lafayette is among the “Best 388 Colleges for 2023” for undergraduate education among the country’s four-year colleges, according to The Princeton Review.

The guidebook for prospective college students recently released its “best schools” list, which is based on results of surveys of more than 160,000 students.

Schools are not ranked in numerical order. Instead, the guide examines academic programs and life on campuses. It provides profiles of each school and other information to help students and their parents make decisions about where to enroll.

The Princeton Review’s “Best 388” list provides students with resource for determining “the best college for them,” stated Rob Franek, the guidebook’s editor-in-chief, in a press release.

“We recommend each one as an academically outstanding choice for an applicant. Our ranking lists, however, are not based on our opinions of the colleges. They’re entirely based on what the schools’ own students have told us about their experiences at them,” he added.

Survey participants highlighted UL Lafayette’s “beautiful campus,” its “friendly atmosphere” and “amazing faculty,” and its “abundance [of] scholarship opportunities.”
