Business Insider Ranks Penn State A Top Ten School That Students Love To Attend

Anyone who visits State College can see how much Penn State students love their university, but according to Business Insider, that love is resounding on a national level. A recent ranking from the website called “25 Colleges Where Students Love Life” named Penn State the ninth favorite university that students love to attend.

Business Insider gathered its information from Niche, a website that gathers research on schools and universities. Niche assessed universities on factors such as athletics, safety, party scene, diversity, and athletics. Ultimately, Business Insider created the list based on the 25 colleges with the best student life scores on Niche.

Each university on the list was given a letter grade on campus quality, party scene, diversity, and local area. Even though State College was ranked in the top 20 best college towns this year, it had just shy of perfect with an A. Business Insider gave Penn State’s diversity a solid B+ and awarded Penn State’s party scene and campus quality each an A+. Penn State beat out schools like Indiana, Illinois, Michigan State, and Ohio State to snag the number nine spot.
