Princeton Review: DU’s library ranks as the nation’s best

Sure, winning a national hockey championship is a major accomplishment. But it’s certainly not DU’s sole claim to Numero Uno status. 

In fact, according to the Princeton Review’s annual Best 388 Colleges list, the Anderson Academic Commons is tops in the nation. So say, with no shortage of enthusiasm, the students responding to the publication’s surveys, from which the rankings are derived.

Whether they’re pulling an all-nighter ahead of midterms, diving deep into the archives or stopping by the Front Porch Café for some sushi and a coffee to-go, students treasure their library.

And it’s no wonder. After all, says Michael Levine-Clark, dean of University Libraries, “The entire enterprise is designed with the community’s needs—learning, research and making connections—in mind.” 

The Princeton Review survey responses give DU strong ratings across the board, with athletic facilities, health services and the campus all earning spots in the top 25 nationwide. Students also commend the University for its commitment to sustainability and the academic experience. 

Faculty and staff are “extremely dedicated to ensuring that the students receive a high-quality, worthwhile education,” one student reports. Another notes how DU has “basically every resource on campus for advising, counseling, health, and assistance with schoolwork.” A third student gives a says-it-all review of the Anderson Academic Commons: “Awesome.”
