Claremont Colleges earn high praise from Princeton Review

Recently, each of the five undergraduate Claremont Colleges — Claremont Mckenna, Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, Pomona and Scripps — were named as some of the nation’s top undergraduate institutions in The Princeton Review’s 2023 college guide, The Best 388 Colleges.

The annual guide highlights colleges “based on the quality of their educational programs” and features the five Cs alongside iconic institutions like Harvard, Yale, and the universities of California at Berklee, Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, Merced, Riverside, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Santa Cruz.

Featured in this year’s guide are editor-compiled lists of the top 25 colleges across 50 categories spanning laboratory facilities, financial aid and campus food. In a brief overview, Pitzer ranked first in the “top 20 best schools for making an impact (private school)” category; Harvey Mudd ranked second for “top 20 best career placement (private schools)”; Pomona ranked third in “top 20 best schools for financial aid (private schools)”; CMC ranked fourth in the “most politically active students” category; and Scripps ranked ninth in “best college dorms.”

The various lists were based on The Princeton Review’s surveys of students currently attending featured institutions. To view the list of the 388 featured colleges as well as a small profile on each, visit
