Furman was ranked No. 4 for “Most Politically Active Students” and No. 17 for “Most Accessible Professors.” The university also ranked 17th in the category of “Most Active Student Government.”

The college guide, which lists the nation’s 384 best institutions for undergraduate education, was released on Monday. The guide has detailed profiles of the colleges with rating scores in eight categories as well as ranking lists of top 20 schools in 62 categories. The 2019 rankings are based on surveys of 138,000 students at the 384 schools.
