Roberts Named A “Best in the Northeast” College by The Princeton Review
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 222 institutions The Princeton Review recommends in its "Best in the Northeast" section of its website feature, "2013 Best Colleges: Region by Region," that posted August 20, 2012 on PrincetonReview.com. In the profile on Roberts Wesleyan, The Princeton Review describes the college as a place with many opportunities for students to develop “personal character and spirituality.”
"We're pleased to recommend Roberts Wesleyan 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,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review's Senior VP / Publisher. “We sorted 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 on our 80-question student survey for this project."
“We are honored to receive this ranking, and grateful to our staff and students who chose to participate in the Princeton Review’s surveys,” said John A. Martin, president of Roberts Wesleyan College. “This accolade only confirms our focus on excellence here on campus.”
The 222 colleges chosen for its "Best in the Northeast" 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 153 colleges in the Midwest, 122 in the West, and 136 in the Southeast as best in their locales on the company’s "2013 Best Colleges: Region by Region" lists. Collectively, the 633 colleges named "regional best(s)" constitute about 25% of the nation's 2,500 four-year colleges.
