Beloit College earned the No. 20 spot on The Princeton Review’s list of colleges with the most accessible professors. The nationally known education services company’s latest rankings were released Monday (Aug. 5).

Beloit also is among The Princeton Review’s list of 378 outstanding institutions and continues to place on its list of “Birkenstock-Wearing, Tree-Hugging, Clove-Smoking Vegetarians.” It ranked No. 10 in the latter category.

“Beloit seeks to evaluate the entire student when considering potential for admission—from grades and test scores, to essays and recommendations, to personality and strength of character,” wrote The Princeton Review of Beloit College. “This holistic approach to assessment leads Beloit to seek students with not only impressive high school transcripts, but those who possess a strong sense of responsibility and show the capacity for leadership.”

The Princeton Review compiles its rankings based on a national survey of 126,000 students.
