Princeton Review: Bowdoin College Tops 'Best Campus Food' List
Bowdoin College in Maine serves the tastiest food on campus, according to The Princeton Review.
The Princeton Review recently ranked colleges based on reviews from 136,000 students at 380 top colleges. Students were asked to rate their schools on dozens of topics and report on their campus experiences. The rankings revealed last week that Bowdoin College has topped the Princeton Review's list of "Best Campus Food."
The private liberal arts college, which was no. 4 on the list last year, not only has its own organic garden, it also has a butcher, and makes its own maple syrup, Portland Press Herald reported.
"Our 62 ranking lists provide students with a way to see the types of colleges that could help them achieve their future goals and dreams," Robert Franek, Princeton Review's senior vice president-publisher, said in a statement. "Every college in our book has outstanding academics. While our purpose is not to crown one college academically 'best' overall or to rank the schools 1 to 380 on any single topic, our lists provide direct student feedback on the schools' campus culture, program offerings and cost. Our goal is to help applicants choose and get into their dream college -- the college best for them."
