College can be grueling. But hitting the books might be a little bit easier if you’re living in some awesome housing. Luckily, students at Emory University have that luxury, because it has some of the best dorms in the nation.
That’s according to the Princeton Review’s 2017 “Best 382 Colleges” book in which analysts at the company collected surveys from 137,000 students at 382 schools and ranked the schools based on student survey answers to a variety of questions, including: “How do you rate residence halls/on-campus housing?”
The “Best 382” collection contains 62 different college rankings, such as most politically conservative students, most LGBTQ-friendly, great financial aid and more.
The analysts then created a top 20 ranking for each category, placing Atlanta’s Emory 8th on the list of colleges with the best dorms.
With 64 percent of undergrads living on campus, the school offers single-room apartments; coed dorms; and fraternity and sorority homes.
And overall, the institution earned a 98 out of 99 rating for quality of life.
The Georgia school has also been recognized among the world’s and nation’s top universities in a variety of rankings, including best quality of life and great financial aid.
