For the 23rd consecutive year, UNC Greensboro has been recognized as one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduates in the Princeton Review’s “Best 387 Colleges” guide. 

UNCG is one of six UNC System institutions to be included in the guide.

Only about 14% of the country’s 2,800 four-year colleges are profiled in the guide. The Princeton Review 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 154,000 college students who rate and report on various aspects of their campus and community experiences for this project, including financial aid, career services, dining, and more.

Feedback from the student survey highlights the personalized support and attention students receive, despite UNCG being one of the state’s largest universities. Students also emphasized the beauty of campus and the diversity of the student body.

UNC Asheville is featured in The Princeton Review’s 2022 edition of The Best 387 Colleges, which includes just 14% of America’s four-year colleges.

For this milestone 30th edition, The Princeton Review curated a unique resource: 26 “Great Lists.” The “Great Lists” identify the colleges in the book with the most impressive history of appearances on the company’s annual “Best of” ranking lists over the years.

UNC Asheville earned two spots on these historical lists – Great College City and Great Town-Gown Relations.

“We are delighted to shine this deserving light on the exceptional colleges that made our ‘Great Lists,’” said Rob Franek, editor-in-chief of The Princeton Review and author of The Best 387 Colleges. “Their placement on these lists goes beyond our high opinion of the colleges: their inclusion in our ‘Best Colleges’ guide bears witness to that. Their ‘Great List’ designations are totally due to the high ratings the college’s very own students have given them over years of student surveys we have conducted for the book and its annual ‘top 20 colleges’ ranking lists in 62 categories.”

Many of the student survey responses make an appearance in the publication, providing information and insight into all aspects of the college experience:

“The undergrad experience at University of North Carolina Asheville is rooted in students’ passion for the world around them,” said The Princeton Review, with students highlighting outdoor activities and the vibrant downtown Asheville scene.

“My professors are the best educators that I have ever had in my entire academic career,” said one student, while others touted the benefits of discussion-based courses and how many courses are taught outside or based on extracurricular involvement and action outside of the classroom.

“I’m very proud to be a Bulldog and serve and interact with this empathetic, driven, and creative community,” said another student, while several cited tolerance, improvement in diversity and inclusivity, and bringing awareness to social, political and environmental issues.

UNC Asheville also earned recognition in The Princeton Review’s Green Colleges 2021 edition and has been named among the Best in the Southeast, which the publication notes is for colleges “that we consider academically outstanding and well worth consideration in your college search.”

UNC-Chapel Hill places in the top 5 of The Princeton Review’s Best Value Colleges

It’s always a great day to be a Tar Heel, and a big reason is the value students get by attending Carolina. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill delivers a top-notch return on investment.

Carolina is named fifth among the nation’s public universities in The Princeton Review’s 2021 list of the “Best Value Colleges,” which was released April 20.

The college admissions service company ranked 650 academic institutions, dividing them into public and private categories. Carolina appears in the top five for the best return on investment among public institutions.

“The colleges that we designate as our ‘Best Values’ this year are truly a select group: they comprise only about 1.2% of the four-year undergraduate institutions in the U.S.,” said Rob Franek, editor-in-chief of The Princeton Review. “These exceptional schools differ in many ways, yet they are alike in that all offer outstanding academics and excellent career services. As important to today’s college applicants and their parents: These colleges have a comparatively low sticker price and/or generous financial aid offerings. We recommend and commend them highly for everything their administrators, faculties, staff and alumni are doing to educate their students and to guide them to post-college success.”

The Princeton Review takes many factors into its ranking on return on investment. Included among the 40 points of data it considers are affordability, career preparation and academic rigor. Scholarships play a significant part of that affordability factor.

Carolina ranked second on the list of public universities for financial aid and fifth among best value public colleges for students with no demonstrated financial need. In addition, Carolina is listed as eighth among public universities for making an impact.

UNC-Chapel Hill consistently ranks among the best universities in value, including topping Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine’s best college value list 18 consecutive times. In March, UNC-Chapel Hill was also named the top large university in the South by the Wall Street Journal.

9 Things Not to Bring to College - The Princeton Review

About

See what students say:

Academics

Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the University of North Carolina Asheville strives to exist at the intersection of curiosity and critical thinking. “Strong STEM and liberal arts programs” provide plenty of opportunity for different educational tracks, and “Small class sizes means more individual attention from professors” who are willing “to work with your needs and limits.” The strength of the faculty is valued among enrollees, with one student saying, “My professors are the best educators that I have ever had in my entire academic career.” Especially “if you’re willing to put in the work,” professors can “create an amazing, welcoming environment,” culminating in an education that’s “nothing short of phenomenal.” In terms of the classroom experience, “First-year seminars provided at UNCA are really great courses for exceptional discussions,” and undergrads tout the benefits of the many “entirely discussion-based” courses that “allow students to experience a leadership role.” Learning is not limited to traditional lectures, with many courses taught outside and opportunities for coursework that’s “entirely based around extracurricular involvement and action outside of the classroom.”

Student Body

The vibe on UNC Asheville campus “Feels extremely friendly,” and as one student puts it, “I’m very proud to be a Bulldog and serve and interact with this empathetic, driven, and creative community.” The student body is made up of “quality students” who have a “wide variety of life experiences and perspectives.” People are “conscientious when it comes to social, political, and environmental” issues, with many working to “make positive changes to the campus culture and society at large.” While most would consider themselves liberal, individuals are “tolerant of different groups” and they “embrace and celebrate our unique student body.” Although some feel that the university could improve at “Being more inclusive for BIPOC, LGBT+, and religious minority students,” others see “Inclusivity of all people” and “bringing awareness to social civil situations” as some of UNCA’s greatest strengths. Ultimately, students agree that “A lot of attention” is dedicated to figuring out how to “best uphold our values and respect for each other, the greater world, and the environment.”

Campus Life

The undergrad experience at University of North Carolina Asheville is rooted in students’ passion for the world around them. Cause-driven activities like food distribution events and zero waste contests give undergrads the opportunity to interact with like-minded peers. Additionally, getting outdoors is a popular pastime. On any given day, you can find UNC Asheville students spending time outside. “Daily walks when the weather is nice is a must,” and “dorm balconies, the quad, and the botanical gardens are wonderful spaces to spend time in nature by yourself or with friends.” Even “during the summer there are always people out on the campus playing frisbee or hanging around in hammocks.” Venturing off-campus, there are “many national forests around UNCA” where students “go hiking a lot,” and enjoy activities like swimming, kayaking, fishing, and rock climbing. For those looking for a more urban escape, downtown Asheville provides “a lot of things to do,” with students heading there to “see small bands play” and “look at different art and stores.” Additionally, “Many [businesses] are locally owned which brings a big sense of community” to the Asheville experience. At its core, the campus and surrounding area is “very welcoming and enjoyable and in a great location.”

Students Say

It's not surprising to learn that UNC Asheville graduates do well on the job market—they have access to a premiere career center that operates as a one-stop shop for individuals on the job or internship hunt. First-year students can swing by and spend some time exploring careers and college majors, and juniors and seniors often visit for career coaching and advising. The Career Center also hosts many worthwhile events: students can attend weekly employer and graduate school spotlights as well as information sessions with programs like the Peace Corps. Additionally, the university hosts numerous career fairs each academic year. And it runs a robust internship program in which students can earn course credit (upon successful completion).

Review unc princeton

About

See what students say:

Academics

Citing “academic prestige” and “affordability,” the “beautiful,” “historic” setting, and “world-renowned” faculty, students take pride in “being a Tar Heel” at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The professors at UNC-Chapel Hill are “top-notch, many of them being academic celebrities,” but “like the students, are never flashy” and remain “humble.” Students find that their professors frequently stress that they are here to “learn from you all as much as you are here to learn from me.” UNC offers undergrads “bountiful resources” as “one of the top public research universities in the nation,” and students have the opportunity to participate in this research by applying for “generous academic grants.” Academics are “rigorous,” but the “quality of teaching makes the material intellectually stimulating.” The college is fairly large, so students will likely attend “large lecture-hall style classes,” yet students stress that as they advance, “class sizes are smaller,” and this leads to “the opportunity to build more personal relationships with professors.” UNC’s “reputation and ranking in STEM programs,” along with its well-regarded business school, are among its greatest strengths. Said one transfer student, “I visited countless top universities,” but UNC was the only one that had a “population…both economically and ethnically diverse.”

Student Body

The student body is “as helpful as it is inquisitive, and as creative as it is caring.” For every “get-to-know-you question someone asks you,” there is a “student happy to direct you to your classes.” Everyone at Carolina is “fun, energetic, and passionate about something.” The students “are smart, but they aren’t haughty and ostentatious about it.” Students are “generally liberal, but there is a vocal religious/conservative presence on campus as well.” Ultimately, UNC is “unified unlike any other school I have encountered,” says one student, “whether it’s in the common support of a sports team, music group, or simply the pride in saying you are a Tar Heel.” Another student agrees, “Donning Carolina blue almost constantly, we all just really love our school!”

Campus Life

UNC offers its “more than 19,000 undergrads” a host of opportunities to socialize, relax, and pack themselves all together at the Dean E. Smith Center to cheer on the men’s basketball team. Carolina has strong athletics, including opportunities for “potential student-athletes.” For non-athletes, it’s a great school to be a fan, “as basketball games especially create a special campus atmosphere that nothing can recreate.” Despite the university’s size, life on campus generally moves at a “slow pace”—in a good way. The campus is full of “gorgeous old buildings, towering oak trees, and ubiquitous birds, squirrels, and chipmunks,” and students “love walking through the upper quad,” a “beautiful green area with lots of old trees.” Raleigh is “only 30 minutes away” and “Durham only 15,” so students will head out there on weekends, and if they need to unwind during the week, they go “out to bars on Franklin Street.” There’s “always a party going on at UNC,” but there are also “plenty of ways to have fun if you’re not into the party scene.” There are several “day hikes somewhat close to campus,” and Carrboro is “within walking distance,” providing a “hip space for social life including a farmers market, concert venue[s], and many bars and restaurants.”

Students Say

University Career Services (UCS) offers a slew of resources to students looking for advising, internships, and jobs, as well as workshops on jobseeking skills. Plus, “there are so many professors at this school that will go the extra mile to ensure you are comfortable and have a plan to maximize your potential.” The campus’ location in the Research Triangle “creates a wealth of opportunities for finding internships, jobs, shadowing, and or extracurricular activities,” and since UNC is the nation’s eleventh largest research university, there is “a colossal amount of ongoing research projects at the university,” which students can often become involved in. And they’re big believers in doing so: “The research is what has made me a better thinker and a better person,” says one student.

Sustainability

As a living laboratory for sustainability and the best value in higher education, UNC has an innovative, high performance campus. Carolina is an ACUPCC signatory and AASHE STARS Gold rated university. Green features include two new LEED Gold lab buildings and a LEED Platinum Education Center, a 32-megawatt cogeneration facility that is nationally recognized for efficiency, several solar arrays and green roofs, and a water reclamation and reuse system that displaces 210 million gallons of potable water annually. UNC has saved $223 million in energy costs and $24 million in water costs since 2003. New buildings are designed to achieve at least LEED Silver. A 1-megawatt generator converts landfill gas into electricity for the grid. A student fee has funded more than $1.5 million in renewable energy and energy efficiency projects. The Green Games competition among residence halls reduces water and energy use and increases recycling. Centrally-located water bottle refill stations reduce the use of disposable bottles. More than 7 million free bus rides are provided annually through the Fare Free Transit System. Career services counselors specialize in nonprofit and environmental careers.

Sustainability

The University of North Carolina at Charlotte is the region’s premier urban research university and believes that the “onus for untangling the complex relationships between humans and their environment and inventing the next generation of appropriate technology rests, at least in part, with us—the research community.” UNC Charlotte’s researchers are set on accelerating that change. Their Urban Institute has been a regional resource on sustainable development, and the new Institute for Social Sustainability (INSS) helps raise the dialogue on social issues to levels common for environmental and economic sustainability. The Energy Production and Infrastructure Center (EPIC) and the Sustainably Integrated Building & Sites Center bring together corporations, government agencies, students, and the university to conduct research into improved energy and water use, air quality, and productivity. UNC Charlotte has committed to building all future building projects to LEED design standards and recycling construction materials. The school’s waste management initiatives are models for the region, including a student-led initiative for zero-waste operations since the 2013 opening of the new football stadium. Green cleaning products and equipment include non-butyl wax stripper, water-efficient cleaning equipment, vacuums with HEPA filters, “coreless” toilet paper, recycled paper towels, and trash can liners made from reprocessed resins. In addition, dining services has partnered with local producers to reduce the use of antibiotics in meat, source sustainable seafood, and serve fair trade coffee. Like its sister campus UNC Greensboro, UNC Charlotte has also implemented “trayless” dining and a reusable mug program in an effort to cut down on paper, food, and water waste. Remaining waste is put to good use through the University’s composting program, which turns an average of 640 pounds per day in food scraps into compost.

Only four universities ranked ahead of UNC in the latest edition of The Princeton Review’s “Best Value Colleges.”

Of the 650 academic institutions ranked by The Princeton Review, Carolina checked in at fifth among public universities. The institutions are ranked on 40 points of data — such as affordability, career preparation and academic rigor. Scholarships play a significant part of the affordability factor.

“The colleges that we designate as our ‘Best Values’ this year are truly a select group: they comprise only about 1.2% of the four-year undergraduate institutions in the U.S.,” said Rob Franek, editor-in-chief of The Princeton Review in a release.

The four universities ranked ahead of UNC among “Best Value Colleges” are University of California-Berkeley, University of Virginia, Georgia Institute of Technology and University of California-San Diego.

UNC ranked second on the list of public institutions for financial aid and fifth among best value public colleges for students with no demonstrated financial need. In addition, UNC ranked eighth among public universities for making an impact.

This new ranking from The Princeton Review comes after UNC was listed as the top large university in the southern United States, according to the 2021 Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education College Rankings. In addition, the newspapers’ ranking also listed UNC as the third best public university in the country and 33rd best overall.

The full rankings from The Princeton Review can be found here.
