AFA tops in nation

Posted By on Tue, Aug 3, 2010 at 1:59 PM

If you're looking to get close to your professors, choose the Air Force Academy.

The Princeton Review's Best 373 Colleges lists faculty availability at the academy as tops in the nation.

The academy student-faculty ratio is 9 to 1, average class size is 20, and 100 percent of the faculty is full-time.

Of course, to get that kind of attention, you have to go through all those nasty drills, marches, runs and other ghastly training. But maybe it's worth it, to never have to take a class from a lowly teaching assistant.

“This is the Air Force Academy's fifth ‘No. 1 most accessible faculty ranking’ in the past six years and validates our outstanding faculty's dedication and commitment to developing officers of character for our Air Force and our nation,” Brig. Gen. Dana Born, dean of the faculty, said in a press release.

The Academy also scored well in other Top 20 rankings in the nation, including:
#4 Don’t Inhale
#4 Stone-Cold Sober Schools
#4 Most Conservative Students
#4 Everyone Plays Intramural Sports
#6 Future Rotarians and Daughters of the American Revolution
#20 Scotch and Soda, Hold The Scotch

The Princeton Review guide uses online student surveys in 62 categories to assess the academic, administrative, social, extracurricular and quality of life aspects of life at American colleges.
