Designation highlights Trinity’s commitment to student experience
Wednesday, September 28, 2022

Trinity University has been named in The Best 388 Colleges: 2023 Edition by The Princeton Review. Each year, The Princeton Review recognizes the nation’s best universities based on feedback from 160,000 college students across the country. The organization then publishes a list that recognizes these schools’ excellence in multiple categories, including financial aid, academics, and quality of life. This designation extends an exciting year for Trinity on the national stage, as the University also made quite an entrance on the national liberal arts college rankings through the U.S. News & World Report.

In The Princeton Review, Trinity was ranked as one of the “Best Western Colleges,” “Best Value Colleges,” and “Colleges That Create Futures.” Trinity has consistently been placed on these lists, making it one of the best ranked universities in the nation. 

Students go to college to transform their future. But how does a University create new futures?

Well, Trinity’s commitment to experiential learning, inclusive excellence, and the enduring versatility of the liberal arts curriculum makes it an ideal place for students of all backgrounds and career interests to prepare for all kinds of futures—including some that might seem improbable.

At Trinity, creating a new future isn’t just about putting students on the cutting edge of tech or technique: It’s about that aforementioned emphasis on versatility. A liberal arts approach has always been about exploring unusual and unique combinations of interests that create new perspectives and solutions to age-old problems.

Simply put, Trinity gives students the chance to explore dependable career options, while also finding ways to incorporate the passions and talents they arrived on campus with.

That means it’s probably no surprise that Trinity’s performance in student-driven rankings is a success, as the University’s top priority has always been student experience. 

The Princeton Review surveys college students from all of the top 388 schools that appear in the book, asking questions about various facets of the college experience, including their school's academics and administration, life at their college, and their fellow students. The Princeton Review then tallies these answers to their questions and decides which colleges will go on certain lists. 

“Since 1992, when we debuted our multiple ranking lists as an alternative to a single academics-only mega list, our mission has been to give students a more useful resource to find the best college for them,” says Rob Franek, editor-in-chief of The Princeton Review. “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.”

Trinity is a university on the national stage. And with more than 110 majors and minors to choose from, our students are engaging in an experiential, liberal arts environment that puts them in the national conversation, across countless career fields.

For 150 years, Trinity University has transformed challenge into boundless opportunity. Join the force in motion at
