The Air Force Academy received top 20 rankings in several categories from the Best 377 Colleges, released this week by the Princeton Review.

The academy ranked in the top 20 for most available professors, as well as low drug and alcohol abuse, according to the annual rankings.

The student faculty ratio at the Air Force Academy is 8:1, average class size is 20. All the faculty are full-time and no classes are taught by teaching assistants.

Several academic departments also staff extra instruction labs during the day, with at least one professor available each class period to help cadets tackle questions arising from their latest lessons.

The academy was also selected as one of the best western colleges by the Princeton Review, a guide that uses online student surveys to assess academic, administrative, social, extracurricular and quality of life aspects at American colleges.

In addition to the Princeton Review honors, the Air Force Academy ranked No. 35 by Forbes in its annual list of America’s top 650 colleges.
