Only about 15% of America's 2,500 four-year colleges and two colleges outside the USA are profiled in the book, which is one of The Princeton Review's most popular guides. The organization released its 2017 "382 Best Colleges" guide today. The lists aren't merely straightforward, focusing on academia and the like, but rather, the Princeton Review are superlative-based: think Best Party School and Most Conservative, for example. All the ranking lists are based on The Princeton Reviews surveys of students attending the colleges.

The other N.C. schools listed are Catawba College, Davidson College, Duke University, N.C. State University, UNC-Ashveville, UNC-Chapel Hill and Warren Wilson College. The guide lists them in alphabetical order.

The Princeton Review bases its annual list on data from surveys of 137,000 students at the 382 schools in the book. Some answers are percentages with ranges from "0-20 percent" to "81-100 percent". "What Election?" category, No. 14 in the "Most Conservative Students" category and #11 in the "Town-Gown Relations are Great" category.

Being in the middle of nowhere in Pennsylvania, surrounded by mostly cows and cornfields, has made Bucknell students the master of the house party. Students also shared that instructors are also "masters at integration of education and Christianity", making the classes at Calvin less about teaching the requisites for getting a job and "more about how to continue to learn about the field and how Christianity should figure into it". A sophomore said: "Winters are long and cold up here", and students take advantage of the plentiful snow by "hiking, biking, four-wheeling, skiing and snowmobiling".

Students who were surveyed highlighted their professors' credentials and accessibility.

"We chose RIT for this book because it offers outstanding academics", said Robert Franek, Princeton Review's editor-in-chief and author of The Best 382 Colleges. "While academics are important-and some other college rankings focus only on academics-we believe lists that purport to rank schools academically aren't useful and are actually counterproductive". Additionally, most are "academically driven".

Students throughout the nation agree: The University of Arizona is an elite academic and research institution.
