Creighton named one of Princeton Review’s Top 381 schools

Students recognized among those most engaged in community service

The Princeton Review has again named Creighton University as one of the nation’s “Best 381 Colleges” in its 2017 edition hitting bookstores Aug. 30.

The college guide’s flagship publication profiles the 381 top institutions of higher learning out of the nation’s more than 2,500 universities and colleges.

Colleges are not ranked in any order, but breakout lists provide short rankings in noteworthy areas. Creighton students earned special recognition for their commitment to community service, ranking fifth in that category, while the University ranks 14th for most religious students.

The Review cites Creighton as one of the nation’s leaders in undergraduate education, saying the University wants to form students who are driven inside the classroom, but “want to find deeper meanings in all that they do to enact change in the world.”

“The Princeton Review’s Guide to Colleges is one of many surveys that recognizes Creighton’s strong academic and service-oriented environment,” said Mary Chase, vice provost for enrollment management. “We are proud of our students who come to Creighton because they want to make a difference in our world.”
