Marquette ranked a ‘Best College’ by Princeton Review for 2022

The Princeton Review this week released its annual best college rankings. Marquette was again named on the list of the “Best 388 Colleges.” The university is also featured in several sub-categories.

Marquette is ranked 12th nationally in the Best Schools for Internships category. The Princeton Review also ranked Marquette among the best Midwest colleges, as well as among the colleges with the best value.

The university is also ranked 16th in the Students Most Engaged in Community Service category and 11th in the Students Love Their School Teams category. The latter is based on student assessments of the popularity of intercollegiate sports at their schools.

“We salute Marquette University for its outstanding academics, and its many other impressive offerings. We’re delighted to recommend it as an ideal choice for students searching for their ‘best-fit’ college,” said Rob Franek, Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief.

The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in the book hierarchically, from 1 to 388. However, the book has 50 categories of ranking lists. Each list names the top 25 schools (of those in the book) in its category. The ranking lists are tallied based on The Princeton Review’s surveys of 160,000 students at the 388 schools in the book.  The company’s 85-question student survey asked students to rate their colleges on dozens of topics and report on their campus experiences at them.  Information on the survey process and methodology for the ranking lists is on The Princeton Review’s website here.
