Greatist.com has released their annual list of the 25 healthiest college campuses just in time for the end of the school year.
- The ranking process started with nominations from readers, reader suggestions from last year’s list, surveys from the College Prowler and Princeton Review and examination of over 100 colleges’ websites.
- Each school is scored for its dining services and awards, fitness facilities, health services, happiness rankings, and health and fitness initiatives.
- The top five schools on this year’s list are Bowdoin College, Stanford University, Virginia Tech, Rice University and Washington University in St. Louis.
- All of the top five campuses feature dining halls that provide students with a variety of healthy food options and unique fitness opportunities including intramural sports, fitness centers and discounted or free fitness classes.
