In The Princeton Review’s recently published book, The Best 387 Colleges: 2022 Edition, Trinity University was named among the nation’s best institutions for undergraduate education. This guide to the nation’s best colleges provides comprehensive profiles on schools and helpful student-driven details that help prospective students choose the college that best fits them.

Because of COVID-19 limitations on student access to on-campus offerings, this edition looked back at ranking lists from the past to find those schools consistently recognized for categories such as financial aid, career services, and great food. Thus, Trinity has been identified by The Princeton Review because it has earned distinction on these lists for decades.

The Princeton Review also surveyed 154,000 students from across the country to calculate the lists for Best Colleges. This survey used the overall consistency of positive feedback from students in a given category, including academics and administration, quality of life, politics, campus life, social scene, and extracurriculars. 

Trinity was also listed in “Best Western Colleges” in The Princeton Review’s “2022 Best Colleges: Region by Region” web feature. To be included in this listing, colleges must be considered academically outstanding and well worth consideration in a prospective student’s college search.

“We are delighted to shine this deserving light on these exceptional colleges,” says Rob Franek, editor-in-chief of The Princeton Review and author of The Best 387 Colleges. In addition to visiting schools and evaluating their academics, The Princeton Review meets with college administrators, students, parents, and educators to help compile a comprehensive rating for each school.

“Since 1992, our goal in publishing college rankings—and our ongoing mission at The Princeton Review—is to help students find, get accepted to, and thrive at the colleges best for them,” says Franek. “We recommend every one of the 387 colleges in the new edition of our book as a ‘best’ choice, and we salute them for their exceptional offerings, especially during this extremely challenging academic year.”
