Princeton Review Names UD a Best College, Rome Program 3rd Most Popular

 

The University of Dallas was again named one of the nations best colleges in the 2015 edition of The Princeton Reviews The Best 380 Colleges. The university's Rome Program was also recognized as being the third most popular study abroad program, an increase from last years ranking as the eighth most popular study abroad program.

We are pleased that The Princeton Review has once again recognized the University of Dallas as one of the premier academic institutions in the country, said President Thomas W. Keefe. University of Dallas students are uniquely motivated to pursue a broad, liberal arts education that prepares them to assume a wide variety of leadership roles.

In its profile of the University of Dallas, The Princeton Review praises the university's rigorous Core curriculum and passionate professors. Students are quoted in the review as seeing themselves united in UDs common sense of purpose among students, alumni, faculty, and the administration to produce independent and critically-thinking Catholics, able to communicate effectively with a keen understanding of what it means to be a socially aware and responsible person.

The university was also ranked fourth for Most Religious Students.

Only about 15 percent of Americas 2,500 four-year colleges and only four colleges outside the U.S. are profiled in the publication, which is The Princeton Review's flagship college guide. It includes detailed profiles of the colleges with rating scores for all schools in eight categories, plus ranking lists of top 20 schools in 62 categories based on The Princeton Review's surveys of more than 130,000 students attending the colleges. The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges academically or from 1 to 380 in any category.

The Princeton Review selects colleges and universities based on feedback from students, parents, educators, counselors and advisors, as well as a 27-member National College Counselor Advisory Board. For more information on The Princeton Reviews methodology, visit www.princetonreview.com.
