Redlands Ranks Among the Best

July 30, 2009 -

The University of Redlands is again one of the country's best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review.

The education services company features the university in the new 2010 edition of its guidebook, "The Best 371 Colleges."

Only about 15% of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges and two Canadian colleges are profiled in the book, which is The Princeton Review's flagship annual college guide.

In answers to survey questions, Redlands students were in most agreement that:

  • lab facilities and athletic facilities are great
  • students are happy
  • and musical organizations are popular

The profile on Redlands again includes student praise of a study abroad program “that is strongly emphasized and encouraged.” And the beauty of the campus’ buildings and setting.

On a scale of 60 to 99, Redlands earned a Green Rating of 85 and a Quality of Life Rating of 85.

The Princeton Review posts the school profiles and ranking lists in "The Best 371 Colleges" on its siteĀ where users can read FAQs about the book, the survey, and the criteria for each of the ratings and rankings.

In April 2010, it was designated a Tree Campus USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. Redlands is among just three other colleges or universities in California to receive this designation.
