Princeton Review’s 2008 college rankings

I was watching the CBS Early Show this morning and saw that Princeton Review has published its new list, “The Best 368 Colleges — 2008 Edition.” They rank lots of colleges in lots of different categories, including “Best Classroom Experience,” “Happiest Students,” and — new this year — “Green Honor Roll.”

Indiana’s men-only school Wabash College represented the Hoosier State well, earning honors for “Best Classroom Experience” and “Best Career/Job Placement Opportunities.”

For the whole Early Show story, go here.
