For the fifth consecutive year, Le Moyne has been ranked by The Princeton Review as one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduate education, according to “The Best 382 Colleges,” the 2018 college guide that came out on Aug. 1.

In achieving the national ranking, Le Moyne joins the ranks of some of the most elite institutions in the U.S. Only the top 15 percent of America's 2,500 four-year colleges are listed in the 2018 edition of the book, which includes detailed profiles of each college along with ratings for each school.

The profile touched on a number of aspects of attending Le Moyne; excerpts from the profile include:

● "...students revel in their four years in a perfect community - small, generous and service oriented."

●"...dining facilities receive rare high marks: The food is great and there is a good variety."

●"...there are always programs going on at night, such as a snow-tubing trip, bowling trip, and an on-campus Pinterest Live! Event... in addition to Trivia Night at the on-campus pub, of course!"

●"Most are usually dressed nicely and seem prepared for class, and do the standard work during the week, go out on weekends routine. A lot of students here are athletes as well, and many bond over sports, or the performing arts."

The rankings are based on The Princeton Review's survey of students at colleges and universities across the nation. For those 382 institutions who made the national list, approximately 137,000 students (about 358 per campus on average) completed an 80 question survey about their school's academics, administration, student body and themselves.

Founded in 1981, The Princeton Review is an educational services company known for its test-prep courses, university admission services, and its annual college, business, and law school rankings.
