Loyola University Maryland has been named one of the nation’s top institutions for undergraduate higher education by The Princeton Review in its latest annual college guide, The Best 382 Colleges.

This year, Loyola ranked No. 15 for “Best College Dorms” and No. 18 for “Most Politically Active Students.” Loyola is the only Jesuit institution and Patriot League school ranked for “Best College Dorms.” Loyola accompanies fellow Patriot League member American University on the list for “Most Politically Active Students.”

Loyola again was featured on the “Best Northeastern Colleges” and “Colleges That Pay You Back” lists.

“At Loyola we take tremendous pride in offering our students a rigorous, values-oriented liberal arts education in the Jesuit tradition,” said Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J., president. “We make a commitment to each student that the education and experience they invest in at Loyola will prepare them for a lifetime of personal and professional growth and success. And our graduates do, indeed, make us proud.”

The Princeton Review chose the 382 best schools based on their outstanding academic programs, and only 15 percent of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges are included. Colleges are not ranked academically or from one to 382 in any category. Instead, The Princeton Review reports 62 ranking lists of the top 20 colleges in various categories. The lists are entirely based on The Princeton Review’s survey of students attending the colleges.
