Nine higher education institutions in Indiana are included in the 2022 edition of “The Best 387 Colleges” book from The Princeton Review. This year’s book also includes more than two dozen “Great Lists,” many of which include Indiana schools.

The Indiana schools in the book, in alphabetical order, include:

  • Butler University
  • DePauw University
  • Earlham College
  • Hanover College
  • Indiana University-Bloomington
  • Purdue University-West Lafayette
  • Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
  • University of Notre Dame
  • Wabash College

The “Great Lists” in the book, The Princeton Review says, “identify the colleges in the book with the most impressive history of appearances on company’s annual ‘Best of’ ranking lists over the years.” 

DePauw University is included in the Colleges that Create Futures and Great College Radio Station lists. Purdue is included in the Great Athletic Facilities list, while Rose-Hulman made the Great Career Services, Great-Run Colleges, Great Professor Accessibility, and Students Study the Most categories. The University of Notre Dame is also included in the Great Campus Food and Great Intramural Sports lists.

Wabash College is included in the most “Great Lists,” making the following categories: Great Athletic Facilities, Great Career Services, Great Classroom Experience, Great College Newspaper, Great Financial Aid, Great Intramural Sports, Great Professor Accessibility, Great Professors, Great-Run Colleges, and Students Study the Most.

The Princeton Review says this year’s book does not include the 62 “Top 20” rankings of colleges, which are usually determined through student surveys.

“With most students attending college remotely this past year due to COVID, we knew it would be impossible to survey them about their on-campus experiences—from how they rated their college library to their campus food,” said Editor-in-Chief Rob Franek. “After all, the majority of them were dining in their family dining rooms, not their campus dining halls. We look forward to returning to our traditional and robust student survey process in the 2021-22 academic year ahead.”
