Furman University has been selected for inclusion in The Princeton Review’s college guide, ranking third for “Most Politically Active Students” and twelfth in “Most Accessible Professors.”

The rankings are based on surveys gathered from 140,000 students within the past two years and/or the previous two academic years at the 385 colleges included within the guide. Only 13 percent of America’s 3,000 four-year colleges made the updated list this year.

“We chose the 385 colleges for this edition as our ‘best’ overall, academically, based on data we gathered in 2018-19 from more than a thousand school administrators about their schools’ academic programs and offerings,” Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief and lead author of the book, said.

Furman is also regularly included “Best Value Colleges,” “Top Green Colleges” and “Best Schools for Making an Impact.”
