ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — The Princeton Review listed Roanoke College as one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduates.

The college was put in the spotlight in the “Best 389 Colleges: 2024 Edition.” The Princeton Review‘s best-of-lists are based on the student reviews gathered by surveys. The company poses 85 questions to 165,000 students across all the schools profiled.

“We created our rankings to provide a resource for college applicants that helps them answer what may well be the toughest question in their college search — ‘What’s the best school for me?’” said Rob Franek, editor-in-chief of The Princeton Review and lead author of “The Best 389 Colleges.” “Our selection of colleges for this book reflects our high opinion of the schools: We recommend each one as academically outstanding.” 

About 15% of the nation’s four-year schools are picked for profiles in the book and this year Roanoke College was one of them.

The college was highlighted for inclusion on several best-of lists including:

  • Great Schools for Business/Finance Majors
  • Great Schools for Psychology Majors
  • Best College Radio Station
  • Best Athletic Facilities

Roanoke students who participated in the surveys reported that they were happy on campus, loved the Blue Ridge region, and had access to great facilities and internship opportunities.

Roanoke has been acknowledged in the best college guide every year since the book’s 2012 edition. In 2014, it was elevated to the list of Great Schools for Business/Finance Majors, and Great Schools for Psychology Majors in 2015. In 2022, its world-class athletic resources at the Cregger Center and its popular student radio station, WRKE, joined the list.
