CLEMSON — It’s not been a secret that students love Clemson University and now The Princeton Review agrees. In its newly released 2019 edition of “The Best 384 Colleges,” The Princeton Review ranks Clemson No. 1 among surveyed colleges in the “These Students Love These Colleges” category.

In the 2018 rankings released last year, Clemson was ranked No. 2 in the “Students Love These Colleges” category and No. 1 in “Best Career Services.” In this latest edition, Clemson is second among universities with “Best Career Services.”

“There are many reasons students choose Clemson: for its outstanding academic reputation, the expected return on investment in their educations and how well they will be prepared for future success in life,” said David Kuskowski, undergraduate admissions director. “It’s not a surprise that they also love Clemson University. It is a beautiful, welcoming place and everyone can feel that are they part of our Clemson family.

Clemson also was ranked in other categories:

  • No. 2 – Students Pack the Stadiums
  • No. 3 – Everyone Plays Intramural Sports
  • No. 6 – Town-Gown as Great
  • No. 7 – Happiest Students
  • No. 16 – Best Alumni Network

The Princeton Review surveyed 138,000 students at 384 top colleges to rate their schools on dozens of topics of interest to applicants to come up with the rankings. The full lists are posted at and The Best 384 Colleges book will be available Tuesday.
