Messiah University Named to Princeton Review’s “Best in the Northeast” List
Messiah University was recently named one of the 223 best colleges in the Northeast according to The Princeton Review. The education services company lists Messiah in the Best in the Northeast section of its "2022 Best Colleges: Region by Region" website feature that posted on August 31, 2021.
The website feature salutes a total of 655 colleges that The Princeton Review recommends over five regions: the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, West and International. The colleges that made the "Best in the Northeast" list are located in eleven Northeastern states. "We chose Messiah University and the other outstanding institutions on this list primarily for their academics," said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review's Editor-in-Chief. He noted that the company considered data from its survey of administrators at several hundred colleges in each region, information from staff visits to schools over the years, and the opinions of college counselors and advisors whose perspectives the company solicits. "We also consider what students enrolled at the schools reported to us on our student survey about their campus experiences," Franek added.
The Princeton Review survey asks students to rate their colleges on dozens of issues and to answer questions about themselves, their fellow students and their campus life. Comments from surveyed students are quoted in the school profiles on The Princeton Review website.
