The University dropped off the list of “Most Politically Active Students” on the company’s annual college rankings after clocking in at No. 10 last year. Before that, GW held onto the title for four consecutive years.
American University secured the top spot on the list, while Pitzer and Reed colleges ranked No. 2 and 3, respectively. Columbia University, which topped the list last year, fell to No. 6.
Over the past 11 years, GW has been consistently ranked in the list’s top 10.
The politically active ranking is based on students’ self-evaluations of their political awareness on a five-point scale from “very low” to “very high,” according to The Princeton Review.
GW didn’t rank in any of the other 62 categories in Princeton Review’s rankings.
