GENESEO, N.Y. – SUNY Geneseo is one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features the college in the just-published 2018 edition of its annual flagship college guide, "The Best 382 Colleges." About 15% of America's 2,500 four-year colleges and two colleges outside of the United States are profiled in the book. SUNY Geneseo has consistently been on the list for a number of years.
“We chose Geneseo for this book because it offers outstanding academics,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief and author of “The Best 382 Colleges.” “Our selections are primarily based on our surveys of administrators at several hundred four-year colleges. We also visit dozens of colleges each year and give considerable weight to opinions of our staff and our 24-member National College counselor Advisory Board. Most important, we look at valuable feedback we get from each school’s customers – our surveys of student attending them. We also keep a wide representation of college in the book by region, size, selectivity and character.”
“Surveys such as this continue to corroborate the quality college experience Geneseo students enjoy,” said Meaghan Arena, vice president for enrollment management. “We offer a strong academic program combined with a rich student life environment which adds up to a college education second to none.”
Published annually since 1992, the Princeton Review includes detailed profiles of the colleges plus student survey-based ranking lists of top 20 colleges in 62 categories. The rankings are posted online.
The Princeton Review's 62 ranking lists in “The Best 382 Colleges” are based on its survey of 143,000 students (about 375 per campus on average) attending the colleges in the book. The 80-question survey asks students to rate their schools on several topics and report on their campus experiences at them.
The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in the book academically, or from 1 to 382 in any category, nor do the rankings reflect The Princeton Review's opinion of the schools. Instead, it reports 62 ranking lists of the top 20 colleges in various categories.
