For the seventh 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 385 Colleges,” the 2020 college guide that came out on Aug. 6.
In achieving the national ranking, Le Moyne joins the ranks of some of the most elite institutions in the U.S. Only the top 13 percent of America's 3,000 four-year colleges are listed in the 2020 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 include:
● “Small intimate class sizes” mean the “professors are always willing to help students,” and nothing is taught by TAs so “It is easy to foster a personal connection with your professors.”
● "Life in Syracuse 'offers so many opportunities,' and students revel in their four years in a 'perfect community - small generous, and service oriented.' "
● Those who go to Le Moyne cite the “unparalleled” feeling of community and that the constant sense that the “personable and endearing administrators” “actually care about you” as the best part of their time here, and the “focus on community service” helps drive the foundational Jesuit principles home.
In addition to the profile listing
, Le Moyne also was included one two academic listings that appear in the publication - Great Schools for Accounting Majors and Great Schools for Biology Majors.
The rankings are based on The Princeton Review's survey of students at colleges and universities across the nation. For those 385 institutions who made the national list, approximately 140,000 students (about 363 per campus on average) completed an 80 question survey about their school's academics, administration, student body and themselves.
