The University of Dallas was again named one of the nation’s best colleges in the 2015 edition of The Princeton Review’s “The Best 380 Colleges.” The university’s Rome Program was also recognized as being the third most popular study abroad program, an increase from last year’s ranking as the eighth most popular study abroad program.
In its profile of UD, the Princeton Review praises the university’s rigorous Core curriculum and passionate professors. Students are quoted as seeing themselves “united in UD’s ‘common sense of purpose’ among ‘students, alumni, faculty, and the administration’ to produce ‘independent and critically-thinking Catholics, able to communicate effectively with a keen understanding of what it means to be a socially aware and responsible person.’”
Only about 15 percent of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges and only four colleges outside the U.S. are profiled in the publication, which is The Princeton Review’s flagship college guide. Colleges and universities are selected based on feedback from students, parents, educators, counselors and advisors, as well as a 27-member National College Counselor Advisory Board.
