Whitman featured in Princeton Review annual college rankings

By Gina Ohnstad

Princeton Review graphicAccording to The Princeton Review, Whitman College has some of the best classroom experiences, the most accessible professors and the best quality of life.
Whitman is featured on several top 20 lists in the education services company's new 2017 edition of its flagship college guide, The Best 381 Colleges.
The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges from 1 to 381 in any category. Instead it uses students' ratings of their schools to compile 62 ranking lists of top 20 colleges in various categories. Whitman College was included in eight top 20 lists, making it one of the most frequently cited institutions in The Princeton Review.
Whitman College is on the following ranking lists:
#6    Lots of Race/Class Interaction
#6    Least Religious Students
#9    Their Students Love These Colleges
#11  Best Classroom Experience
#11  Most Accessible Professors
#12  Best Quality of Life
#14  Most Liberal Students
#19  Best College Dorms
The lists are based on surveys of 143,000 students attending the colleges. They were asked to rate their experiences on a range of topics, from their professors to their school's library, career services and student body's political leanings.
Only about 15 percent of America's 2,500 four-year colleges are profiled in the book, one of The Princeton Review's most popular guides.
The Best 381 Colleges has been published annually since 1992.
