New rankings reveal drop in quality of life and athletics at K-State


The Princeton Review released its annual college rankings this week and discovered that K-State students fell behind in quality of life.

In 2014, the university was ranked No. 3 for best quality of life. This year, that ranking dropped to No. 6.

While K-State’s ranking for happiest students rose from No. 7 in 2014 to No. 4 this year, the university dropped from No. 5 to No. 7 for athletic schools.

Last year, the university ranked No. 11 in students who pack the stadiums category. This year, K-State did not even appear on the top 20 list while the University of Kansas ranked at No. 3.

The Princeton Review asked 136,000 students their thoughts on school rankings in 62 categories ranging from Most Beautiful Campus to Reefer Madness.
