Caltech Closes Out Another Winning (Academic) Season

When the Princeton Review released its annual list of the best U.S. colleges, Caltech made the cut again, ranking first in the “Best Value Colleges” category, first in “Students Study Most” category, second in “Best Career Placement,’ fourth in “Best Science Labs,” and fifth in “Best Value Colleges Without Aid.”

Caltech finished at No. 12 in U.S. News and World Report’s National Universities ranking for 2020, tying it with Dartmouth College, a solid citizen of Old Ivy.

But when asked about its greatest achievements for 2019, and Caltech being Caltech, none of the above journalistic conventions were mentioned, rather research and advances in knowledge.
