Hollins University is one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduates according to the 2022 edition of The Princeton Review’s The Best 387 Colleges.
Hollins is also featured in two of the “Great List” categories the education services company curates: “Most Politically Active Students” and “Great College Theater.” Each list names 16 to 29 colleges in alphabetical (not ranked) order.
In the guide’s profile of the university, students praise Hollins as “a great place for people who want life experience” that provides “a lot of incredible opportunities for anyone willing to take them.” They also cite internship and study abroad opportunities as “exceptional” and describe faculty as “amazing, talented, dedicated, and compassionate.” The Princeton Review adds, “The alumni network is similarly solid, and many students land jobs and internships through previous graduates.”
“We salute Hollins for its outstanding academics and we are genuinely pleased to recommend it to prospective applicants searching for their ‘best-fit’ college,” said Rob Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief and lead author of The Best 387 Colleges.
Only about 14% of America’s 2,700 four-year colleges are profiled in the guide. The Princeton Review chooses the colleges based on data it annually collects from administrators at hundreds of colleges about their institutions’ academic offerings. The company 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.
The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in the guide from 1 to 387.
The Best 387 Colleges is the 30th anniversary edition of the book. It has been featured on NBC’s Today more than a dozen times, and referenced by reporters in publications ranging from Inside Higher Ed. to The Wall Street Journal.
