Roberts Makes Princeton Review's Best in the Northeast List - Again
ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Roberts Wesleyan College is one of the best colleges in the Northeast according to the nationally known education services company, The Princeton Review. It is one of 220 institutions The Princeton Review recommends in its "Best in the Northeast" section of its website feature, "2012 Best Colleges: Region by Region," according to PrincetonReview.com.
Says Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s Senior VP / Publisher, “We’re pleased to recommend Roberts Wesleyan College to users of our site as one of the best schools to earn their undergrad degree. We chose it and the other terrific institutions we name as ‘regional best’ colleges mainly for their excellent academic programs. From several hundred schools in each region, we winnowed our list based on institutional data we collected directly from the schools, our visits to schools over the years, and the opinions of our staff, plus college counselors and advisors whose recommendations we invite. We also take into account what students at the schools reported to us about their campus experiences at them on our 80-question student survey for this project. Only schools that permit us to independently survey their students are eligible to be considered for our regional ‘best’ lists.”
“It is a significant honor for Roberts Wesleyan College to receive this special recognition from the Princeton Review,” said Dr. Robert Zwier, provost at Roberts Wesleyan College. “The College has worked very hard to build a strong faculty and a comprehensive curriculum, so that our students can be equipped in mind and heart to shape and serve their communities and the world.”
The 220 colleges The Princeton Review chose for its "Best Northeastern Colleges" book and website list are located in eleven states: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont, and the District of Columbia. The Princeton Review also designated 152 colleges in the Midwest, 121 in the West, and 135 in the Southeast as best in their locales on the company’s "2012 Best Colleges: Region by Region" lists. Collectively, the 629 colleges named "regional best(s)" constitute about 25% of the nation's 2,500 four-year colleges.
