UM Makes Princeton Review’s Prestigious ‘Best Colleges’ List

Coral Gables (August 24, 2012) — The University of Miami is one of the nation’s most diverse institutions, according to the nationally known education services company, the Princeton Review. UM is ranked in the top 10 for “Race/Class Interaction” in the 2013 edition of Princeton Review’s The Best 377 Colleges.

“Our students come from varied backgrounds and cultures,” says Patricia A. Whitely, vice president for student affairs. “Diversity is an integral component of life at UM, creating a vigorous blend of perspectives that enriches our students’ educational experience. In all, UM is the academic home of nearly 1,300 foreign students from more than 110 countries.”

The Best 377 Colleges publication ranks colleges and universities in 62 categories, such as “Great Financial Aid,” “Best College Dorms,” and the newest category, “Their Students Love These Colleges.”
