College of Idaho included in Princeton Review’s list of 382 top colleges | Idaho Press-Tribune Local News

CALDWELL — The College of Idaho got included in The Princeton Review’s 2018 edition of The Best 382 Colleges.

For this 26th edition, 137,000 students across the country were surveyed. 

According to a press release from C of I, this honor is given only to the top 15 percent of America’s four-year colleges.

“We chose The College of Idaho for this book because it offers outstanding academics,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s Editor-in-Chief.

Colleges included in the list are not ranked, but are listed alphabetically. Inclusion in the list is based on ratings and reviews of the college’s academics, financial aid, administrative services, LGBTQ community acceptance, social campus life and more.

A C of I freshman said in the survey, “My school is way more than a place for me to learn. My teachers have become more like guardians for my education, and my peers…my second family.”

This is not the first time that the college has been included in the list – It was featured last year as well in the 2017 edition, and has featured several times in the past 25 editions. 

The college also made it to The Princeton Review’s list of best western colleges.
