Suffolk University to be Featured in The Princeton Review College Guide

3/26/2004

Suffolk University is one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review.  It is one of the schools The New York-based company chose to be added to the forthcoming 2005 edition of its annual "best colleges" guidebook, which will be titled  The Best 357 Colleges  (Random House / Princeton Review, $21.95 paperback), and available in bookstores in late August 2004.

Says Robert Franek, Asst. V.P / Guidebook Publishing, The Princeton Review, "We regard the schools in this book as 'the crème of the crop' institutions for undergraduate education.  Only about 10% of the colleges in America, and only two Canadian colleges are in the book.   Each one offers an outstanding academic program.  We select schools for the guide based on our knowledge of them, on data we review about them, and on the opinions of students and parents we talk to and survey.   We also work to have a wide representation of colleges in the guide, by region, size, selectivity and character.  It includes public and private schools, traditional and non-traditional colleges, historically black colleges and universities, and science and technology-focused institutions."

The Princeton Review college guide is unique in offering both two-page profiles on the colleges and college ranking lists based on what over 100,000 students attending the schools in the book report about their college and campus experiences at them.  The lists report the top 20 ranking colleges in the book in 63 different categories covering topics from academics and financial aid to aspects of campus life.

The book's profiles also include candid comments from surveyed students at each school about their opinion of it.   When each edition is published, The Princeton Review posts the book's ranking lists and information from the college profiles in it on its website, PrincetonReview.com.

The Best 357 Colleges is one of over 200 books developed by The Princeton Review in a line published by Random House Inc.  The 2004 edition was The Best 351 Colleges .  Known for its books, test-prep courses and other education services, The Princeton Review is not affiliated with Princeton University or ETS.
