The Princeton Review is out with is annual survey of students about college life. And Evanston’s ranking dropped. But that’s good.

The survey says students at 18 other schools ranked town-gown relations in their community more strained than did students at Northwestern.

Last year Evanston came in in 6th place, and it’s been in the top, or bottom, 20 every year since 2008, except for 2011, when it failed to make the list.
