What universities offer the best professors and campus life?
The ratings giant produced this school honour roll by crunching the numbers in its massive database that contains 10 million ratings for professors from more than 6,5000 institutions.
In this beauty contest, professor rankings represented half the score and the other 50% was based on students’ ranking of their schools on such factors as reputation, location, career opportunities, library, food and social activities.
