HWS Ranks High in Impact and Value

In the 2020 edition of Best Value Colleges, Princeton Review ranks Hobart and William Smith among the nation’s top 25 schools for campus engagement. The annual list also recognizes HWS for academics, financial aid and strong career prospects for graduates.

The Colleges were ranked 15th on the list of 25 schools for “Making an Impact,” based on student survey responses to questions about community service opportunities, active student governments, leading sustainability efforts and on campus student engagement. High job meaning, as reported by graduates, is also a factor. This is the third consecutive year Hobart and William Smith have been recognized in the “Making an Impact” category.

Hobart and William Smith are again among U.S. colleges and universities that produced the most Fulbright U.S. Student Award winners. Each year the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs announces the top producing institutions for the U.S. government’s flagship international educational exchange program. In the past five years through the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, 25 HWS students have been awarded full research grants and English Teaching Assistantships that take them around the world.
