Virginia Tech received high marks in the Princeton Review’s annual college rankings.
The university was featured in the top 20 in six categories, according to the magazine. Those rankings include:
- No. 2 in “town-gown relations are great.”
- No. 3 in “their students love these colleges.”
- No. 3 in “best campus food.”
- No. 7 in “best quality of life.”
- No. 14 in “happiest students.”
- No. 17 in “best alumni network.”
Last year, Tech snagged the top spot in the “their students love their colleges” category for what had been the second year in a row. Tech also appeared in the top 20 in the other lists where they’re highly ranked in 2017.
The publication’s rankings are organized into 62 lists and are based on surveys from 138,000 students’ assessments of their colleges and universities. The rankings are presented as going outside academics to see how a student will fit in at a school.
Princeton Review has published a book with the results called “The Best 384 Colleges” guidebook that is available for purchase.
