Virginia Tech topped a ranking list for “their students love their colleges” categories in Princeton Review rankings for the second year in a row.
Last year, the school earned the top spot in that category as well as the “best quality of life” category. Tech placed fifth in the quality of life category this year.
Tech students who were surveyed described Blacksburg as the “perfect college town.” The Princeton Review noted “you’ll see more maroon and orange in a single day here than most people will see in a lifetime,” according to a news release from the university.
Tech also captured the No. 6 spot for “best campus food,” No. 11 for “best alumni network,” No. 15 for “town-gown relations are great” and No. 19 for “happiest students.”
The publication’s rankings are organized into 62 categories and are based on surveys from 137,000 students’ assessments of their colleges and universities.
Princeton Review has published a book with the results called “The Best 382 Colleges” guidebook that is available for purchase.
