The Healthiest Colleges In The Country According To The Daily Beast

Posted: Updated:

Brigham Young University is the healthiest college in the United States, according to The Daily Beast's ranking.

BYU was also rated the most sober college in America by the Princeton Review, so it only makes sense that cutting out the alcohol will make you a bit healthier.

In fact, the list of healthiest colleges is predominately comprised of private, Christian universities that forbid students from alcohol consumption.

The Daily Beast used publicly available data and information collected and published by College Prowler, an online guide created by students to rank schools. The healthiest category was based on how drug-free colleges were considered and how healthy dining options were.

Check out the top 9 below and head over to the Daily Beast for the full rankings.
