Great campus food. A student newspaper that's strong. And, an active student government.
Those are all characteristics of the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University, according to a survey of the Princeton Review, a college admission services company.
Since 1992, the Princeton Review has produced a ranking of colleges and universities. "The Best 381 Colleges: 2017 Edition" came out earlier this year, with CSB and SJU being jointly listed (the list appears in alphabetical order, with "featured" client schools listed first).
Within that publication are 62 ranking lists. Each list identifies the top 20 colleges in a specific category. Only schools listed in "The Best 381 Colleges" appear in these lists, based on survey results from students who attended those schools.
CSB and SJU were jointly listed in the following lists:
Best College Newspaper - CSB and SJU were listed No. 14.
Most Active Student Government - CSB and SJU were listed No. 15.
Best Campus Food - CSB and SJU were listed No. 18.
In addition, CSB and SJU were listed among the Best Midwestern Schools, Colleges that Pay You Back and Green Colleges.
