“Our purpose is not to crown one college ‘best’ overall or to rank these distinctive schools 1 to 379 on any single topic,” said Princeton Review senior vice president Robert Franek. “We present our 62 ranking lists to give applicants the broader base of campus feedback to choose the college that’s best for them.”

Other No. 1 spots: Syracuse University in New York claimed the title of nation’s top party school; Elon University in North Carolina as best-run college; Washington University in St. Louis, Mo., for its dorms; and Yale University for best newspaper.

The website Campus Pride also maintains a resource index of LGBT-friendly schools across the country.
