Princeton Review lists UL Lafayette among nation’s “Best 389” colleges


The University of Louisiana at Lafayette is one of the 389 “Best Colleges for 2024” for undergraduate education among the country’s four-year colleges and universities.

That’s according to The Princeton Review, which recently released its yearly guidebook for prospective college students. The guide features just 15% of America’s four-year colleges and universities.

“Our selection of colleges for this book reflects our high opinion of the schools: we recommend each one as academically outstanding,” Rob Franek, the guidebook’s editor-in-chief, stated in a press release.

Schools are not ranked in numerical order, but alphabetically. The guide examines academic programs and life on the campuses of each of The Princeton Review’s “Best 389” schools.

The list includes profiles of each school and other information that is designed to assist prospective students and their parents in making decisions about where to enroll.

This year’s “best schools” list is based on results of surveys of more than 165,000 students. As a whole, survey participants cited academics, financial aid, amenities, career services and campus culture among their key considerations in choosing a school.
