9 May 2023 HWS Named Among Best Value Colleges by The Princeton Review

Outstanding education, career prep and value? Check, check, check. The Princeton Review ranks HWS among the nation’s schools offering the best value. 

For the eighth consecutive year, Hobart and William Smith have been cited among the nation’s best colleges for students seeking a great education with excellent career preparation and graduation rates, according to The Princeton Review.  

The education services company’s Best Value Colleges 2023 recognizes Hobart and William Smith based on more than 40 data points covering academics, affordability, graduation rates, and career and salary data for graduates from both student surveys and payscale.com.  

Hobart and William Smith Colleges are one of only 209 colleges chosen from more than 650 institutions included in the annual rankings of best-value colleges. 

"Hobart and William Smith provide students with a world class liberal arts education and critical opportunities to put it into practice. With guidance and support from faculty, staff, alums, Geneva community members and peers, our students graduate ready to take on complex problems in fields they are passionate about. We are pleased that Princeton Review has once again recognized HWS. We are very proud of our students’ accomplishments and successes," says President Mark D. Gearan. 

Earlier this academic year, the HWS were included in the “Professors Get High Marks” and “Green Matters” lists in The Princeton Review’s Best 388 Colleges. The lists recognize HWS among only 25 schools nationally for having professors who “are interesting, and bring their material to life,” and for having students and administrators who care about the environment.
