EUGENE, OR – College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published a ranking of the 50 Best Colleges for LGBTQ Students.

Choosing a college is an overwhelming process in and of itself. But for LGBTQ identified folks, the task is all the more intimidating. To succeed academically it’s important to succeed socially; it’s important to think holistically about well-being while in school. College Choice has attempted to assuage some of the difficulty in the search by researching the country’s fifty best colleges and universities for LGBTQ students.

“After determining what are the best schools for LGBTQ students, we also took a look at statistics to ensure high student retention rates as well as general academic and professional success of students at these schools,” Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice, said of the ranking. “We want LGBTQ students, like all other students, to thrive personally and academically at the college where they enroll.”

College Choice developed its list by looking at data from individual college websites, the Campus Pride Index, U.S. News and World Report, and the National Center for Education Statistics.

The ranking for the 50 Best Colleges for LGBTQ Students finds Princeton University in the top spot. Massachusetts Institute of Technology is in second, and University of Wisconsin Eau Claire rounds out the top three.
