Queens College Praised for “Lots of Race and Class Interaction” in The Best 377 Colleges

FLUSHING, N.Y., June 19, 2013 — Once again, Queens College has been named one of the country’s best institutions for undergraduate education by the Princeton Review. The renowned education services company features QC in the 2013 edition of its annual college guide, The Best 377 Colleges
And, in a nod to its extraordinarily diverse learning environment, the college ranked fourth in the U.S. for “Lots of Race/Class Interaction.” This category reflects how frequently and easily students from different class and ethnic backgrounds interact with one another.

The college’s “Quality of Life” rating remained high this year and is higher than the Quality of Life rating for Fordham University, St. John’s University, Hofstra, Cooper Union, Bard College, and all the SUNY colleges. This category is a measure of “how happy students are with their campus experiences outside the classroom,” including the beauty and safety of the campus, comfort of the residence hall, quality of food, and friendliness of fellow students.
