Clemson named one of the country’s ‘Best’ colleges in The Princeton Review’s Guide for 2022


The Princeton Review® has again named Clemson University one of the country’s best institutions for undergraduates in their Best 387 Colleges guide for 2022. 

To celebrate its 30th-anniversary edition of the book, The Princeton Review® also curated 26 “Great Lists,” which Clemson has been named to seven: 

In its profile on the guide website, Clemson also is rated on other factors based on student surveys: Quality of Life (92 out of 100), Fire Safety Rating (97) and Green Rating (87).

“We chose 26 of our annual ranking lists categories when making these lists, focusing on those areas that college applicants and their parents told us mattered to them. We are delighted to identify the schools that have earned distinction on these lists for decades,” according to The Princeton Review website.

Approximately 14 percent of America’s 2,700 four-year colleges are profiled in the book. The company chooses the colleges for the book based on data it annually collects from administrators at hundreds of colleges about their institutions’ academic offerings. The Princeton Review also considers data it gathers from its surveys of college students at the colleges who rate and report on various aspects of their campus and community experiences.

“We salute Clemson for its outstanding academics and we are genuinely pleased to recommend it to prospective applicants searching for their ‘best-fit’ college,” said Rob Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief and lead author of The Best 387 Colleges.
