University ‘among most fun’ schools
According to Business Insider, the Top 20 schools were sorted usingThe Princeton Review’s rankings in 15 categories.
Auburn received many points by being ranked the No. 1 jock school byThe Princeton Review.
According to Peter Jacobs, education reporter forBusiness Insider, Auburn made the list because there is great quality of life on campus.
“We thought that if the students have such a strong connection with the school, they must really love it there,” Jacobs said.
There was a “Top 20 Most Fun Universities” list published in 2013, and Jacobs said if Auburn wasn’t on it, it was probably close.
Lauren Harris, senior in human development and family studies, said she is not surprised Auburn made the list.
“It’s a big college with a small-town feel,” Harris said.
In the Top 20 article,Business Insiderpoints out these universities are not known for “all play and no work.”
According to Jacobs, many of the ranked schools were also ranked for their academics.
Anna Bobo, junior in business, said she was surprised Auburn was in the Top 20 because it’s not often you hear of a school being known for its great academics and also for being fun.
“It’s like Auburn is the whole package,” Bobo said.
Schools ranked the highest had strong Greek Life, competitive athletics and student involvement.
“We looked for the happiest students,” Jacobs said.
