The 2015 Cappies™ recognize schools with the widest, most interesting selection of on-campus clubs and activities

“Our job as an organization is to help make a student’s college search process and eventual decision easier. This type of information factors greatly into an applicant’s final college choice.” -- Sarah Wilde, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Cappex

Colleges across the nation are getting more and more creative when it comes to extracurricular on-campus clubs and activities. These clubs are more popular than ever with students, and there’s never been a larger array to choose from. However, some schools feature particularly noteworthy choices for involvement during a student’s free time. Because of that, they are a part of the Top 25 best colleges list for The 2015 Cappies™’ fifth category: “Best Colleges For Activities”.

Cappex, Your College Decision HeadquartersTM, helps students discover new colleges and scholarships, compare top choices and read student reviews. With this mission in mind, Cappex created the 2015 Cappies™, a compilation of more than 1.4 million student reviews of more than 3,000 colleges and universities. The result is a list honoring America’s top 25 favorite schools across six popular categories.

Today, Cappex is pleased to announce the schools with the highest ratings in the “Best Colleges For Activities” category. Within each college page, student reviewers also provide tips on specific clubs and activities offered at each school -- and how to get involved quickly and easily.

Here are some specific features of certain institutions listed on the newest 2015 CappiesTM.

  •     One school features more than 100 student organizations, including a Quidditch team known as The Butterbeer Brewers. The Brewers compete against other colleges in the sport from the “Harry Potter” novels.
  •     At another school, students can serve as a docent at the on-campus museum of art, run for a position in student government -- or look to join multiple theater, music and dance programs.
  •     A third school publishes a monthly creative writing publication and offers the opportunity to join a student-run dance club where various styles of dance are taught and performed.

Many of the on-campus organizations listed are academically and professionally oriented. They give students a break from daily classroom pressure, while also enhancing their knowledge base and preparing them for life after graduation. Interest-based, religious, performance-based and social justice groups are also well represented in Cappex’s new Top 25.

“While academic achievement during college is important, it’s just one part of the student’s overall college life. Involvement in outside activities also contributes to a positive campus experience, and Cappex has assembled a complete list of schools with the greatest variety of choices,” said Sarah Wilde, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Cappex. “Our job as an organization is to help make a student’s college search process and eventual decision easier. This type of information factors greatly into an applicant’s final college choice.”
