Eight Indiana colleges and universities are included in an annual publication of the country's top schools. The Best 381 Colleges from The Princeton Review is based on results from survey results of more than 140,000 students.

The Princeton Review then uses some specific data to populate several lists of rankings of more than 60 categories throughout the year.

The Indiana schools in the 2016 Best 381 list are: DePauw University, Earlham College, Hanover College, Indiana University, Purdue University, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, University of Notre Dame and Wabash College.

Wabash Dean of the College Scott Feller says "I appreciate the Princeton Review rankings because they highlight the dedication of our faculty, staff, and alumni to the education of young men. I am especially pleased to see the strength of our fine arts programs recognized as well as the accessibility of faculty."
