Texas State University has been named one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduates to earn their college degree by the Princeton Review. 

The education services company profiles and recommends Texas State in the 2021 edition of its annual college guide, The Best 386 Colleges. The book does not rank the universities in numerical order. 

Only about 13 percent of America’s 3,000 four-year colleges are profiled in the book. The company chooses colleges for the book based on data it annually collects from administrators at hundreds of colleges about their institutions’ academic offerings. The Princeton Review also considers data it gathers from its surveys of college students who rate and report on various aspects of their campus and community experiences for this project.   

"COVID-19 has presented sobering challenges for school administrators and educators, as well as daunting decisions for students and their parents," said Robert Franek, editor-in-chief at the Princeton Review. "What impressed us in our administrator survey findings is the flexibility many colleges built into their reopening plans, especially those giving students options to study remotely or on campus with health and safety protocols in place. We will continue to report on new and changing developments as this unprecedented academic year progresses." 

The Princeton Review's school profiles and 62 ranking lists in The Best 386 Colleges are posted where they can be searched for free with site registration.
