Suffolk University Listed Among "Best 357 Colleges"


BOSTON, MA - Suffolk University had been selected by The Princeton Review as one of “The Best 357 Colleges" for undergraduate education in North America. The University will join the exclusive group of institutions profiled in Princeton Review's 2005 edition of "The Best 357 Colleges."

"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," said Robert Franek, assistant vice president for guidebook publishing at the The Princeton Review, who said Suffolk University is among "the cream of the crop" for undergraduate education. Only about ten percent of the colleges in America, and only two Canadian colleges are in the book.

The Princeton Review citation is one of many recent accolades for Suffolk University. The University was among eight institutions selected to receive an award for its international programs from NAFSA: Association of International Educators. Suffolk was cited in part for its campuses in Madrid and Dakar, which were seen as unique in welcoming both local and U.S. students, providing a model for other campuses as they work toward internationalization.

During the past few years, Suffolk has been named one of Barron's "Best Buys in College Education" and was selected as one of the "Best 201 Colleges For The Real World." The Princeton Review listed Suffolk as one of the "Best Northeastern Colleges," and its 2005 edition of The Best Business Schools will include the Sawyer School of Management.

Suffolk University, located on Boston's historic Beacon Hill, with campuses in Madrid, Spain and Dakar, Senegal (Africa), is a comprehensive global institution distinguished by its teaching and the intellectual contributions of its faculty. Suffolk offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate programs in more than 70 areas of study. Its mission is to provide quality education at a reasonable cost for students of all ages and backgrounds, with strong emphasis on diversity. Suffolk has a combined enrollment of more than 7,000 full-time and part-time students at its Law School, College of Arts and Sciences and Sawyer School of Management.
