Best 385 Colleges - Book Cover

Hollins University is among the top 20 schools in the country for politically involved students, effective student government, and college theatre, according to the new edition of The Princeton Review’s annual college guide, The Best 385 Colleges.

Hollins is ranked #4 in the category Most Politically Active Students, #16 for Most Active Student Government, and #19 on the Best College Theatre list. In the guide’s profile of the university, students state that the campus is “a great place for people who want life experience” and “the internship and study abroad opportunities for students of this school are exceptional.” Students also describe professors as “amazing, talented, dedicated, and compassionate.”

“We salute Hollins University for its outstanding academics and we are truly pleased to recommend it to prospective applicants searching for their personal ‘best-fit’ college,” said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief and lead author of The Best 385 Colleges.

Only about 13% of America’s 3,000 four-year colleges are profiled in The Best 385 Colleges and are chosen based on data The Princeton Review annually collects from administrators at hundreds of colleges about their institutions’ academic offerings. The company also considers data it gathers from its surveys of college students who rate and report on various aspects of their campus and community experiences.

The 2020 edition of The Best 385 Colleges will be published August 6.
