Fairfield University Earns High Distinctions on Princeton Review’s Best 386 Colleges List

The University has once again earned a place on the Review’s lists for Best Northeastern Colleges, Best Value Colleges, and Green Colleges.

Fairfield University has once again been named to The Princeton Review’s annual college rankings of the best 386 colleges for 2021. Fairfield earned several national and regional distinctions, highlighted by inclusion on the review’s Best Northeastern Colleges, Best Value Colleges, and Green Colleges lists.
 
The University also earned a high return on investment (ROI) rating, which combines Princeton Review’s academic rating, financial aid rating, and college costs, with Payscale.com data from alumni surveys on starting and mid-career salaries. 

Student survey responses gave Fairfield high scores for quality of life, fire safety rating, and campus sustainability. Additionally, Fairfield’s faculty was awarded high praise for professor quality, as well as for professor accessibility outside the classroom.

These rankings were based on student responses to a survey that asked 143,000 students at 386 of the nation’s top colleges to rate their schools on dozens of topics important to college applicants and their parents, including “their school’s academics and administration, their life at college, their fellow students, and themselves.” 
 
Student commentaries from the survey are included in each college’s Princeton Review profile, with Fairfield receiving praise for its “strong and accepting community,” its “outstanding business and nursing programs,” and its “engaging [and] passionate” faculty.
