Fairfield University Makes New York Times and Princeton Review Best-Of Lists

As part of its third annual ranking, The New York Times has placed Fairfield University among the top schools in the country to help foster “the American Dream.” The ranking, determined by the College Access Index, measures the economic diversity at the country’s top higher education institutions.

Fairfield has also been named among the top 15% of all schools in the country as part of The Princeton Review’s annual Best 382 Colleges. Fairfield was included in the schools considered to have the “Best Quality of Life” and “Happiest Students.”

“Our Princeton Review editors have always had a high regard for Fairfield’s academic offerings,” said The Princeton Review’s editor-inchief,
Rob Franek. “Our respect for their undergraduate offerings has only grown over the years, but it’s particularly compelling to see Fairfield this year make our ranking lists for ‘Best Quality of Life’ and for ‘Happiest Students.’ That is a great tribute to Fairfield’s administrators and the appreciation its students have for their outside-the-classroom campus experiences from dorms and food to the beauty of the campus.”
