Brown University has the happiest students in the United States, MIT the most studious, and Bowdoin the best fed, says Princeton Review Inc. The rankings come from the Framingham company’s annual survey of 122,000 students for its book, “The Best 373 Colleges,’’ which comes out today.
Northeastern University was also lauded, coming in tops for the quality of its career services program, Princeton Review said.
However, New England colleges and universities missed out on the splashiest category: top party school, a distinction that went to the University of Georgia. The closest such schools to Boston were number three Penn State (number one in 2009) and number 19 University of Maryland. The most sober campus, for the 13th year running, was Brigham Young University.
But what of Harvard? The university emerged to lead one of the 62 categories, best library.
