In a reveal that won’t be surprising to any Virginia Tech alum, the university has been ranked the top school in the nation for quality of life, by the Princeton Review.

Every year the review petitions tens of thousands of students, from all over the country, concerning their opinion of higher education institutions. The Princeton Review publishes their “Best of Colleges” lists during the summer, which rank 381 colleges and universities in several categories.

In addition to Best Quality of Life, VPI also led all 381 schools in the category of “Their Students Love These Colleges.” Other categories that the Hokies performed well in are listed below.

No. 4 - Best Campus Food

No. 7 - Happiest Students

No. 7 - Lots of Race / Class Interaction

No. 7 - Town - Gown Relations are Great

No. 10 - Best Alumni Network

No. 18 - Colleges that Pay You Back Without Aid

If you are interested in learning about the methodology used by the Princeton Review to develop these assertions you can read them here.

Great job to the faculty, staff, and students that make Virginia Tech such a special place to be a part of!

Go Hokies!
