The University of Louisiana at Lafayette is one of the best institutions in the nation for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review.
The 2016 edition of the popular college guide, “The Best 380 Colleges,” was released Tuesday, according to a press release from UL. Only about 15 percent of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges, and only three colleges outside the U.S., are profiled in the guide.
The Princeton Review does not rank universities in a single hierarchical list from 1 to 380. Its college guide includes two-page profiles of each of the schools considered to be among the top schools.
“The Best 380 Colleges” includes institutional data and the results of surveys of 136,000 students at hundreds of universities. Students rate their schools on several topics and report on their campus experiences.
UL students cited in the profile gave high marks to academic programs such as architecture, art, biology and nursing.
The University “is all about melding creativity, spicy Cajun culture, and academia into a gumbo-pot of successful scholars,” according to one quote included in the college guide.
