The ranking comes on the heels of other recent Princeton Review honors in which Stonehill was credited with having among the best career services and internship program in the country.

For its latest college guide, the venerable organization surveyed 160,000 students from across the country and reviewed its ranking lists from the past to find those schools consistently recognized for attributes such as academics, financial aid, career services and great food.

Quotes from student surveys in The Princeton Review profile highlight some of the College’s strongest attributes. Among the aspects students love most about Stonehill were its professors and academics, noting that “academics are challenging but those who work hard are successful” and that professors are committed to “helping students reach their full potential academically and guiding [them] toward what [they] might want in [their] future.”

As one student put it, "I feel like I have learned the most in my entire life in my four years at Stonehill."
