The 25 Healthiest Colleges in the U.S.

We all know which schools are considered the “smartest” and which schools offer superior athletic teams, but do we ever pay attention to which schools are considered the healthiest? Luckily, the people over at Greatist decided to take it upon themselves to see how different schools are doing their part to provide students with a health-conscious environment. Using a rigorous scoring process, they narrowed it down to the 25 Healthiest Colleges in the US. We’re taking a look at a few of the schools that made the cut.

#11 Yale University: Did you know that aside from a diligent student population, Yale also boasts an on-campus garden? Perhaps this is why the university is highly-rated for its offerings of healthy and organic foods! They get an A+ for food from College Prowler, a website dedicated to college reviews for students and by students.

#14 Rice University: At Rice, student meal plans are unlimited which means plenty of opportunity to put together healthy and balanced meals. In addition, they offer an extensive well-being resource site and have a ton of health and fitness events put together by the rec department. Maybe this is why they have the happiest students according to the Princeton Review!

#18 Stephen F. Austin State University: This Texas university offers a lazy river, a rock wall, and sand volleyball courts – perfect for the active student. Health-conscious students also have extensive access to nutrition information on the school’s dining website.

#19 Tufts University: Need a little TLC before a long night of studying? Stop by the Tufts University Health Center where the school offers chiropractic treatment and

massage therapy. The majority of students – about 70% – deem this service both convenient and high-quality! I feel relaxed just thinking about it.

#22 Oberlin College: Students at Oberlin are often grateful for the wide variety of vegetarian, vegan, and organic meal options available on campus. They also have the option to take part in a co-op which includes cooking and eating with a group of students with similar preferences. Parents of students can feel at ease knowing there is a 24-hour nurse line open for any health situation that might arise.
