Loyola University Maryland has been named one of The Princeton Review’s Best 377 Colleges for the publication’s 2013 edition.

The Baltimore college was also named to The Princeton Review’s list of 220 “Best Northeastern Colleges,” ranked third nationally for best college dorms and seventh for best athletic facilities.

“This recognition speaks volumes about the value of the inspirational living and learning experience we offer our students,” Jesuit Father Brian F. Linnane, president of Loyola University Maryland, said in a statement. “While our rigorous academic programs and diverse social and service opportunities draw only the most exceptional students to Loyola each year, we continually strive to innovate as our entire community – and our Jesuit mission – challenges us to deliver excellence in everything we do.”

Loyola has 14 residence halls, including doubles, suites, apartments and townhomes.

The college’s athletic facilities include a 6,000 seat athletic complex, a 2,100-seat arena, a fitness and aquatic center with a two-story indoor rock climbing wall, a 6,000-square-foot fitness center, gymnasium and pool with 500 spectator seats.
