Tuskegee among The Princeton Review’s 2019 ‘best colleges’

August 06, 2018

The Princeton Review's "Best 384 Colleges" college guideTuskegee University is among the nation’s best universities for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company included Tuskegee in the 2019 edition of its annual college guide, “The Best 384 Colleges.”

One of The Princeton Review’s most popular guides, “The Best 384 Colleges” relied on surveys of 138,000 students at 384 top colleges that include a wide representation by region, size, selectivity and character. Tuskegee students surveyed for the publication provided candid feedback in a number of areas about their experiences, including:

“The ‘rich history’ of the school has always been about ‘achieving the...highest level of performance’ in all areas of service, leadership, and academics, and everyone in the community works to ensure that ‘the Tuskegee Experience is like none other.’”

“‘School is about gaining independence and responsibility so that you will be able to grow and compete in the real world.’ Small classes and personal interaction with professors help further this process along, and the school aims for ‘excellence within every aspect of education offered at the institution.’”

“‘My professors don’t teach because it’s their job, they do it because they care and want you to learn and succeed. It’s very obvious,’ says one student.”

“At this go-getter university, the typical student here is ‘someone who is driven to becoming successful in the future through studious methods.’”

“Though this HBCU is naturally predominantly black, there is much diversity in that ‘people from all across the country come to school in this small city in Alabama.’”

Tuskegee’s full profile is available online on The Princeton Review’s website (login required).

Published annually since 1992, the college guide has detailed profiles of the colleges with rating scores in eight categories, as well as ranking lists of top 20 schools in 62 categories.
