The Princeton Review Lists The University of Scranton among the Nation’s ‘Best Colleges’

Aug 12, 2014

The University of Scranton is once again among “The Best 379 Colleges” in the nation, according to The Princeton Review. This is the 13th consecutive year that the University has been included in annual college guidebook.

In the 2015 edition, The Princeton Review praises the University’s “outstanding record for admission to graduate programs, not only in law and medicine but also in several other fields.” The guidebook also said “Scranton is a good fit for ambitious students seeking a Jesuit school in every sense of the word.”

The 2015 edition also lists the University among 20 “Best Run Colleges” in the nation.

The Princeton Review selects just 15 percent of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges and universities for inclusion in the annual “Best Colleges” book based primarily on “offering outstanding academics.” The book includes detailed profiles of the colleges with rating scores for all schools in eight categories, plus ranking lists of top 20 schools in the book in 62 categories based on The Princeton Review’s surveys of 130,000 students attending the colleges.

The 2015 edition of the college guidebook became available on Aug. 5.

In addition to The Princeton Review, Forbes and The Center for College Affordability and Productivity ranked the University No. 265 among the 650 universities included in a listing of “America’s Top Colleges 2014” that published July 30.
