Six Black Colleges and Universities Are Included in the New 373 Best Colleges Guide Published by the Princeton Review

The Princeton Review recently published its annual 373 Best Colleges guide. Among the 373 colleges chosen as America’s best are six historically black colleges and universities. They are Fisk University, Hampton University, Howard University, Spelman College, Tuskegee University, and Xavier University of Louisiana.

Each year the Princeton Review surveys students at the colleges it features and ranks the schools in a host of categories including best and worst dorms, food, campuses, etc. The six black colleges and universities among the 373 colleges in the Princeton Review guide did not fare well in these rankings. Fisk University ranked first among the 373 colleges and universities as having the least happy students. Fisk also ranked high on the list of colleges with the worst food.

Tuskegee University was rated as having the worst dormitories among all 373 colleges and universities.

Hampton University ranked second on the list of schools with the worst food and fourth in the category “Dorms Like Dungeons.”

Xavier University was on the list for worst dorms and least beautiful campus.

Howard University made the list of schools where professors were least accessible. But on a good note, Howard also was rated as having one of the best college newspapers and best college radio stations.
