WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The Princeton Review has named Purdue University among the top 20 colleges in the nation in a variety of campus-life categories, including best athletics, best college newspaper and best campus food.

In January, Purdue ranked in Princeton Review's 100 "best value" colleges for 2009. The education services and test-prep company said the rankings were an attempt to highlight schools that offered high-quality education at a reasonable price.

Purdue ranked 15th for its intercollegiate and intramural sports and 19th for on-campus food. In addition, The Purdue Exponent ranked 17th among college newspapers.

For the most recent ratings, respondents were asked about themselves and their school’s academics, administration, campus life and student body. Princeton Review did not rate academic programs, but rather created 62 rankings based on students’ campus experiences and other institutional data.

“These ratings bear testimony to the excellent quality of student life Purdue offers,” said Randy Woodson, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost. “Purdue offers a world-class education, and campus life is an integral part of that. We work hard to ensure student life is enriched through the residential experience and extracurricular activities.”

Princeton Review reported students saying: “Purdue boasts an ‘absolutely amazing’ freshman orientation program, and, with more than 800 clubs and organizations, ‘there is something for everyone.'”
