Saint Louis University has been recognized by the Princeton Review in its newly-released Best 385 Colleges: 2020 Edition.

SLU was ranked No. 2 in the nation as the university most engaged in community service – an honor that reflects SLU’s historic commitment to being people for others.


In addition, SLU was ranked No. 6 as an impact school and No. 19 for most religious students (based on how strongly students agree that their fellow students are very religious).

One of The Princeton Review’s most popular guides, The Best 385 Colleges rankings are based on surveys of 140,000 students at 385 top colleges that includes a wide representation by region, size, selectivity and character. Published annually since 1992, the book has detailed profiles of the colleges with rating scores in eight categories as well as ranking lists of top 20 schools in 62 categories.
