Loyola Marymount University has been recognized among The Princeton Review’s “Best 388 Colleges for 2023,” earning high marks in the flagship college guide for top-rated science labs, library facilities, counseling services, sustainability initiatives, and much more.
LMU clinched spots on several of the publication’s “Top 25” lists, earning four impressive “Top 10” rankings. These include Best Science Lab Facilities, No. 6; Best College Library, No. 9; Students Most Engaged in Community Service, No. 4, and Most Beautiful Campus, No. 4.
Additionally, The Princeton Review named LMU among 31 Green Honor Roll schools – a recognition reserved for those receiving a score of 99 (the highest score possible) in green rating tallies.
“Our selection of the colleges in this book is based on our opinion of their academic offerings. We recommend each one as an academically outstanding choice for an applicant,” said Rob Franek, Princeton Review editor in chief and lead author of “The Best 388 Colleges.”
“Our ranking lists, however, are not based on our opinions of the colleges,” Franek said. “They’re entirely based on what the schools’ own students have told us about their experiences at them.”
The Princeton Review’s 85-question survey asks students to rate their professors, administrators, school services, and other aspects of life at their colleges and to report on their campus and community experiences. Surveys of 160,000 students (about 400 per college on average) were tallied for the 2023 rankings lists.
The “Best 388 Colleges” guide – the publication’s 31st edition – features only about 14 percent of the country’s four-year schools.
