Dickinson was recently named a 2021 “Best Value College” by The Princeton Review, adding to a growing list of accolades the college has accrued from The Princeton Review and others.

The acknowledgement is based on a combination of institutional and student survey data, with such factors as academic rigor, affordability and graduate outcomes comprising the three foundational features. The information was collected from fall 2019 through fall 2020 and compiled from more than 40 total data points across the spectrum of the college experience, from academics, costs, financial aid and graduate debt levels to graduation rates and salary data.

In its release, The Princeton Review said, “Our 2021 Best Value Colleges are, in our opinion, truly the most exceptional in the nation at delivering great academics, affordable cost and great career foundations.”

Dickinson has also recently been recognized by The Princeton Review on its lists of Best Northeastern Colleges, Best Classroom Experience (No. 15), Most Popular Study Abroad Program (No. 2) and Top 20 Best Schools for Making an Impact (Private Schools) (No. 11).

In 2020, Dickinson was ranked No. 6 among The Princeton Review's Top 50 Green Colleges, and in 2021 the college was named to the Green Honor Roll, receiving the highest possible score of 99.
