The Princeton Review has once again ranked the University of Vermont among the nation’s top colleges. The education services company profiles and recommends UVM in the 2021 edition of its annual guide, The Best 386 Colleges.

Only about 14% of America’s 2,800 four-year colleges are profiled in the book. The company chooses colleges based on data it annually collects from administrators at hundreds of colleges about academic offerings.

The Princeton Review also considers data gathered from its surveys of college students, who rate and report on various aspects of their campus and community experiences for this project.

Based on student feedback, UVM ranks as #18 for College City Gets High Marks, #18 for Best Health Services, and #20 for Their Students Love These Colleges. The university is also listed as #4 for Top 50 Green Colleges, among other rankings.

In survey responses, UVM students describe the school as “academically rigorous” and their peers as “friendly, passionate, and involved.” Of their learning experience, one student said, “Professors have opened my eyes to new interests, new ways of thinking, new skills, and new innovations.”
