The Princeton Review has once again named the College of Charleston as one of the best institutions for undergraduate education in America. The college admission services company profiles and recommends the College of Charleston in the 2022 edition of its annual college guide, The Best 387 Colleges.

This is the 18th consecutive year that CofC has been recognized in The Princeton Review rankings.

According to The Princeton Review, “Nearly 10,000 undergraduates and approximately 1,000 graduate students at the College enjoy a small-college feel blended with the advantages and diversity of a mid-sized, urban university. Students work with exceptional professors who love to teach, who are focused on student growth and who help them succeed. The city of Charleston – world-renowned for its history, architecture, culture and coastal environment – serves as a living and learning laboratory for experiences in business, science, technology, teaching, the humanities, languages and the arts.”

Not only does The Princeton Review name the College as one of the best schools in the Southeast, but the school is also recognized in the categories of “The Best College Cities,” “Colleges That Create Futures” and “Green Colleges.”

Only about 14% of America’s 2,700 four-year colleges are profiled in the Best Colleges book, which is one of The Princeton Review’s most popular publications. The company chooses the colleges for the book based on data it annually collects from administrators at hundreds of colleges about their institutions’ academic offerings. The Princeton Review also considers data it gathers from its surveys of students at the colleges who rate and report on various aspects of their campus and community experiences.
