Princeton Review Ranks the Colleges - How Did the Locals Make Out?
Tuesday, August 03, 2010
The annual rite of college list passage began as the Princeton Review released its lists of college rankings for 2011 - from biggest party school to most conservative. GoLocalProv has a peak into how the RI schools ranked.
The College Hill university made the Princeton Review list in a number of categories such as: #5 Best Radio Station in the country, happiest students #1, and best college theater #17.
The Catholic college gets taken to the woodshed for lack of race relations and acceptance of gays and lesbians. PC is ranked #18 for being unaccepting of gays and lesbians, #4 in the country for having little interaction between the races (please see GoLocalProv's 360 degree study of race at PC) and the Friars have the sad situation of getting nailed with the reputation of having "lots of beer" - #10 in the country.
University of Rhode Island
The Rams' rankings are only marginally better. Rhody takes hits for least happy students in America #20, lack of political awareness ("election, what election?") #7, and poor ranking for the faculty #11 (worst).
Was evaluated, but made none of Princeton Review's lists
Roger Williams University, Salve Regina University, RISD, and Johnson & Wales University were not considered.
