5 Central Mass Colleges Named “Best of the Northeast” by Princeton Review

Friday, August 24, 2012

 

Come on, that's a nice building right? Princeton Review disagrees, naming Clark the 17th least beautiful campus in America.

Central Mass takes pride in its many prestigious universities, and five of them were recently named "Best of the Northeast" by Princeton Review.

Assumption College, Clark University, College of the Holy Cross, Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Worcester State University all made the cut of the best schools in the region, with some taking home awards in other categories.

Assumption

The small Catholic School in Worcester may only have a few more than 2,000 students, but that just helps give Assumption an outstanding 12:1 student-to-faculty ratio. With popular programs in accounting and psychology, Assumption is one of the more appealing smaller schools in the area. And fellas, you may be interested to know that over 60 percent of the undergrads are female.

Clark

Located on Main Street in Worcester, Clark balances a small school atmosphere with the big-time research being done across different departments. While many people find Clark's brick buildings appealing, apparently nobody the Princeton Review spoke to did, as Clark came in at #17 on their list of least beautiful campuses.

Holy Cross was named a best value among private schools

Holy Cross

While it has about 1,000 students more than Assumption, Holy Cross has the same small Catholic school appeal. The school was named a best value by Princeton Review among private institutions, but came in 18th on the publication's list of schools that don't get along with the surrounding town.

Worcester Polytechnic Institute

WPI is one of the most respected engineering schools in the country, with popular majors like computer science and mechanical engineering. Another small school, WPI has fewer than 4,000 undergraduates on campus, but those that are there are on the cutting edge of new fields such as robotics and biomedical research.

Worcester State

The lone public school on the list, Worcester State is an attractive option for many local students. And, with an average in-state tuition of just $970, it's easy to see why. But it isn't just about getting a degree at an affordable price, Worcester State also offers popular programs in business administration and criminal justice.
