“Our selection of the colleges in this book is based on our opinion of their academic offerings. We recommend each one as an academically outstanding choice for an applicant,” said Rob Franek, editor-in-chief of The Princeton Review and lead author of The Best 388 Colleges. “Our ranking lists, however, are not based on our opinions of the colleges. They’re entirely based on what the schools’ own students have told us about their experiences at them.”

Earlier this year, the University of Richmond was named to The Princeton Review’s list of the Best Value Colleges for 2022 and ranked #2 among private schools on the “Best Schools for Internships” list. UR was also named to the Green Colleges list.
